Some first color layer prints drying. #reduction #suicideblock #woodcut #printmaking #art #portrait #beard #inprogress (at Cranbrook)
Lay beside me and listen at the wall,
we’ll keep on lying until the summer comes
I had that dream about you again,
where you drive my car right off the fucking cliff
And now I`m breathing deeply, walking backwards,
finding strength to call and ask her,
Rollercoaster favorite ride,
let me kiss you one last time
"You won’t allow me to go to school.
I won’t become a doctor.
One day you will be sick."
