Favorite Quote:
"Girls can too."

You look and see a garden of flowers,
All leaves and vines and petals.
Black ink; an odd, yellow sort of paper.
(Look close: a cat hides beneath the juniper)

He sees four hours of practice and work.
A million speckles of ink on his favorite shirt.
That spiral, there, near the butterfly net
Took such a long time to perfect.

His picture is hung there, for all to see,
But each takes only what they want it to be.
