the blank new sketchbook carnet d'esquisses more properly
gold letterpress on ridged card
the blue of cornflowers
precious gift from dear friends visit to Paris
it may wait my next visit there
too perfect to use
Speckled, bars of brown on tan, fidgety marks either side of a strong, dark quill. Fluff changes to solid but not solid. Part the feather and it smoothes back into a single blade. Perfect design by nature.
Empty pill packet. Each blister crumpled like an old volcano. The broken foil twangs. Seven days, seven capsules, one blank to fit neatly on the rectangular pack. Expiry date 04/2015 but empty pack will not expire in landfill.
