"All Lights Be Out"

When I pulled this small cat print at the Cleveland Institute of Art, the print instructor, H. Caroll Cassill, ceremoniously and silently returned a pile of bombastic abstract prints I had made.

They were smart enough to play fetch and raced around the Coventry apartment at all hours.
