Writing by hand is elegance in half-cursive,
sketching images onto expansive white in pen.
Show all the mistakes on purpose.
Turn faults into a new direction.
I taught myself to bandage and manage
my crippling perfectionistic tendencies
by using permanent pens vs impermanent pencils.
Instead of erasing I changed the terror of error
by incorporating, by re-routing, by relabeling
the art seemed to lead me to remake itself.
