imagining the aptitude to inspire
as he grew older throughout the years
how often did harold rely on his purple crayon
for answers? his sixteenth birthday was he wondering
about the war overseas or listening to john lennon?

was it important that he find a more practical
response than drawing with his crayon
or was harold maybe enough of an illusionist that
as he was aging, he kept experimenting with art
until one day he realized it was perfectly acceptable
creating a reaction far removed from reality. well?
