- What Matters
Freddy starts designs with paper and pen.
On cold, bleak surfaces of his work table.
One design he created has a hen.
Soon he hopes to afford HD cable.
Sounds of pen scratches and scissors resound.
Clean, rough, translucent fabrics fill the room.
His phone never goes off nor makes a sound.
He keeps his work space clean and loves his broom.
An amorphous droplet of blood was drawn.
He sees piles of ribbons and sketch books.
His chance at a break is about to dawn.
He is in pursuit of the next big looks.
His only break is lifting his steel fork,
But he is still, at heart, a ribbon dork.
