Dear Lovely Young Art Teacher,
I completed my homework assignment.
I sat in front of a full length mirror,
book propped on my knees and against my reflection,
as I sketched my self-portrait.
It took a long time.
It took a lot of courage.
I hope you are never asked to do this.
When you are forty-something.
By a Lovely Young Art Teacher.
I now inform you in writing that I will be dropping
Visual Communications 124, Drawing.
Thank you for your time.
