THE RED SHIRT, Singleton 2007, Outsider Art

(c) Singleton 2007
Outsider Woman Hippie Art
The RED Shirt
SOLD



I see you
with your borrowed bar room eyes...
watching.
But you didn't count on
all those drinks...
Your spy slipping into
an early pity party,
elbows on the bar,
face falling gently
into the glittered shot...
And I waited.
Saved the last dance...
For the get-away.

81/2 by 11 cardstock, colored pencils, markers, ink, and all that hoo-hah late at night

Holding her in my hot little hands, she is so much prettier than this virtual world can even begin to touch down on

It is such a pretty painting! The eyes are so clear and blue. Everything's blue around here. When in doubt!
I love the blues, too.
The poem is so clever. I love the way it ends, or heroine falling a bit, a ruse, to make good her escape. And the coarse drink buyers were all left in the wake behind her, wondering where she burrowed her eyes from.
