Millions.

The second poem for Commas & Colons was Millions by Konnor Thorpe. I really enjoyed my first taste of interpreting poetry through drawing, and it is (already) definitely something I want to revisit.



Millions

brutal men dressed in wool and whiskey
and cigarette smoke
talk about their wives
war stories
waiter waits
blue button eyes
didn’t win the jackpot

never do
he says
maybe next week
always next week
ain’t it
twenty million dollars
what couldn’t you buy

- words by Konnor Thorpe.


Again you can find my illustration alongside its muse here as part of the ,&; 'Achoo' issue.
