Art Description

Drawing: Pencil on Paper.

In White Gloves

Winter arrived on crutches--

and like the woman on the subway
who brushed my hand by accident,
simply could not bear to give herself over.

There was beauty in her pale face;
a tempered eagerness that clawed
its way down a tiny crack in my window

but already night had
cast it's black mist
into her wizened eyes
and death came quickly

-better to die in the arms
of an intimate stranger...
-better still
to have never tasted
the immensity of a snowflake.

The original 12 x 9 pencil drawing on Strathmore 50 lb sketch paper is protected with a matte finish. Art and canvas prints in varying sizes are also available.
