easel work

By Rachel Awes on June 10, 2013

i have walked through my moms’ t-shirts,
drying in her kitchen entryway
to begin painting flowers on her cabinets
+ cleared off the clutter that was above + below.
(next, i will bring blues into those blooms)
walking into each others lives, through all that it is,
is not always easy work, but it is the work of this easel,
+ of my very life.
