Being(s) With

Pastel on paper 21.5” x 16.5” each

These drawings were made for you,

newest peers, friends, community.


Thank you for opening up despite strange times,

for being, hearing,

for caring about each of the ‘other’.


Drunken laughter to somber lessons,

delicate musings to heartfelt makings,


Stories mix, cultures get re-understood,

expanded minds create freely with compassion,

peoples, bodies, spaces unravel


What kind of shoes do you wear?

Are you looking into my eyes?

Would we recognize us, from a different angle?


I look forward to (re)meeting you.
