Good morning you! So since I can’t post everything that I am working on for my upcoming show, #NoStrings at #kpprojectsgallery , I’ve got some flashbacks I’ve been meaning to put up here. A few years back I was able to paint this wall with my good friend #jasonmaloneyart :) #flashbackfridays #graffiti . I use #ironlak #oswaldtheluckyrabbit #craola #cbscrew #waistedcrew #lordscrew86 #basherskrew
I follow it, the snail of thought
I leave the track, turn off this trail
I crouch in shadows, under ferns
I refuse to answer every bird
I see the liquid glister in its shell
I taste the wind
I smell the smoke of fire in the woods
I hear the crackle of a thousand thorns
I feel the temperature rising
I consider every option valid
I attend each phase
I crumble into wet, black ground
I lose my place in sand and gravel
I listen for the clash of weeds
I wonder where the snail will go today
