My Friend, the Artist

By , Grand Rapids, MI

My friend keeps her art to herself,
covering her best work with her dad’s old shirts.
She is careful, precise,
when she draws her straight, red lines.
She slashes through her pale, freckled canvas,
creating ridges where it used to be smooth.
An expert at creating that raw texture,
she is talented, I suppose.
If only she would use a paintbrush
to make her art
instead of a knife.

Wow. I really like this, it has a bit of darkness to it, but I like the style and symbolism. I would've liked to see a bit more description, but other than that, beautiful job!
