"There's not much doubt in any of our minds that no complete idea springs fully formed from our brow,
needing only a handshake and a signature on the contract to send it off into the world to make twenty-five billion dollars.
The germ of the idea grows slowly..." - Walt Kelly

Words today are amateur, diligent and nurture.

Oh, and also this from Marco Mazzoni, done entirely with colored pencils (which blows my mind):


Do you remember
where we left off?
The dark hail
of insults,
the diligent joy
of our agony.

Don't forget
     to trail the string
          of flawed, empty logic
behind you,
nurturing a clear path
upon which we'll tread
after you,
feet leaden
with anticipation.

When you stand
with your wings burdened,
amateurish attempts to lift off
over and done with,
meld back in
with the pinks and blues
and let the last memory trail out.
At last! A solar flare.

Playing on my iTunes at this very moment:
Lauryn Hill, Doo Wop


  1. Yeah, love the strong voice coming through here!

  2. .Some beautiful phrases'feet leaden with anticipation' and 'dark hall of insults'. A powerful poem of personal angst.

    Thank you for the introduction to Mazzoni's stunning drawings
