GUEST POST // 10,000 Pencils by Gregg Savage

Two years and two days and 10,000 pencils,
No tracing or reprints or cheap, plastic stencils.
From a dot to a line from a shape to a figure,
A symbol of thoughts from my brain to my fingers.

A mark on the page meant the white was now tainted,
With another damned hope that this time I’ll make it.
My passions run under my detailed bridge,
With the promise they’ll say, “Let’s stick that on the fridge!”

  1. I like the use of- “Let’s stick that on the fridge!”

    as children our biggest hope is for the people we love and respect to say “Let’s stick that on the fridge!”

    Now as adults, especially in the social media age, we continue to look for those small tokens of validation; is this drawing/story/etc worthing of a mention/like/fav/etc.
