Dirty, Singleton 2006, Outsider Art

DIRTY
Outsider Hippie Woman Artist
(c) Singleton 2006

Your dirty little fingers are everywhere,
leaving fingerprints
where no man
has gone before.

But, don't be fooled,
they aren't tatoos
and
like a summer tan,
they fade....
blend....
become part of the past....

We need the beach....


Colored markers, pens, pencils and all that hoo-hah on cardstock, collaged on canvas....

I like the idea that nature is the only thing to wash clean the dirty fingerprints of a man from the narrator's body. Beautiful.
