“Perceptions” ©️C.P. Hickey 2019


Greasy charcoal crayon rendering depth on a page.

Pulling form from the invisible event horizon.

Coaxing details into existence.

Something from nothing.

A shuffling of dried and smudged papers,

Some within an oblong carrying case.

All but that one picture;

The one with spilled coffee and rings.

My secret being: that was the absolute best I could have ever done.

But, artistic propriety doesn’t allow viewing.

People might mistake my intention,

And we can’t have that.

Even in art.
