Roses bloom with my touch.
We made a new tradition.
It feels so nice to be home at last.
Photos of people from the place I was born.
Black lives matter.
All we could do was stand still.
Sorting it all out in my sketchbook.
Keep sketching ’til the end.
Plastic heads and static screens.
We have each other to fall back on.
