This is a poem I wrote in my teen years, when I spent most of my time hanging out in basements listening to my friends jam while I wrote poetry. The drawing came years later, when I decided I wanted to visually represent my own poetry. I don't claim to be a great artist by any means, but I think the drawing suits the poem perfectly, and you can now find the poem and drawing as an art piece that you can purchase in the shop on this page (Both Solo Framed Art Piece | Mysite (thepanopticalpoet.com)), and at various retail outlets across B.C. This poem was included in the reprint of my chapbook, 'A Kootenay Flower in Foreign Soil'. Enjoy!
