bracelets (2005)

start off with bracelets

of plastic and letters

and dates

then onto bracelets

made of yarn and strings

multi colored

symbolizing what a

friendship means

then the pursuit for

bracelets made from

precious metals

but the cost must have

been too high

instead of platinum and gold

bracelets with letters


free silver bracelets

are received

to be an artist (2005)

to be an artist

must you suffer

and if so

have i?

though involved

in death and loss

heartaches and


not great

art comes


no paintings,

sculptures, drawings

or sketches

stories, novels,



since i have

suffered, or at

least think i have

maybe im not

an artist

then what am i?

no label to label

or title as such
