doodles doodled while talking on the phone
By James Francis
a circle, with 2 dots and a curve inside: "happy face" a tiny
triangle and a curved line at the bottom make it a happy face balloon.
puffs of clouds, then flying sheep.
a triangle, angled again into a pyramid. dots of sand.
an oval with a shaded "lip" inside, like a manhole, with an arrow coming out.
a curved line, nothing, with perpendicular lines depending therefrom.
shading makes drapery, or corrugated metal, or the aurora borealis.
this could be a fish but it's in the shape of your eye. lash-like
fins and tail, and circles for bubbles.
a squid is a little arrow, a little fireworks rocket with suction-cup
legs. ink blot.
this face has an asterisk and a spiral for eyes.
a sphere can be many things; this one is not.
cube. cube. legs, arms, antennae and screen: TV man, with power
cord tail. nothing on.
a sphere with three legs is a capacitor, a disc with two legs is a
resistor. they fight with lightning bolts. electricity.
this line is the horizon, the one above it is the mountains. short
verticals make telephone poles, connected by curves of lines.
this t-shirt is yours, these curves are your breasts. I can't do you justice.
a crescent: banana, smile, or moon?
I miss you.
