"You can make thick or thin lines, Dotted or blotted lines
Lines going up and lines going down
Hot jagged lines orLines that are cool Lines that go splash right in a pool.
Your line can make a square Or your line can make a round.

A line can move you like a swing A line can be most anything." - Leonard Kessler, 'What's in a Line?'
