Minnemingo Review


Foundations of Drawing                                  Gillian Smith

One
thin
line,
wrinkled,
winking
without color—
dolor
ponders
       curving
       down
the page to
pelvis, the hip popped out
painfully
jiving and
writhing.
Cautious,
my long arm
lulls,
pauses,
poised to put
personality
in its place, but
the pencil
splinters.
