Sketches of Life

.         i
The scent of onions—
from the kitchen the sound of
a knife tap-dancing.

.         vi
A shrugging gesture—
the child making it uses
even her eyebrows.

This complete version of “sketches of Life” is included in Andrew’s new collection, Distillations of Different Lands, scheduled for publication by Sunline Press next month.
