illustrations to haikus by Stephanie Barber, by Lauren Bender.

(Lauren's illustrations are in italics.)

looser than Lincoln
more wishful than washington
john quincy adams

probably wooden teeth
represented by eyes and knots
large hands and diminutive fruits

they obtained two kids
and changed them into egrets
it was surprising

this one would be whimsical and illustrative
think shel silverstein meets audubon
with the same amount of endearing inaccuracy

look at the camera
now tilt your head to the left
act like you’re crying

I wish there was a way to draw an animated gif
once I had this idea to film women thinking about fear
I would be okay with this one being portraiture

Lauren Bender will performing her work at
WORMS on October 13.
