“Knives Are Like Mishaps” by @jillesta   1 comment

Knives Are Like Mishaps

Knives are like mishaps
Making marks
On the table.

A slice here,
a chip there.
Every day less.

Each white lie,
Each small omission,
Each clumsy word,

Subtracts.
Leaves scars.
Empties.

@jillestahas long been a bright spot in my tweetstream. An artist of many talents, she illustrates sparingly rich truths.
