In Anchoring My Art in Abstraction

by animalworkss

I never really write about anything in particular-
The imagery moves too fast.
Moments stay long enough to attract my attention,
But then disappear as soon as I move in for a closer look,
Leaving not a trace of care, nor linger of longing
Amidst the remnants of my expression.
I reckon I can’t keep up;
Reckon it’s not even worth the movement of effort;
Reckon it’s reckoning holding me back from the start-
A thought to which I respond,
“Lord have mercy, girl… Just go to bed already…”
