nobody

knows

who

the artist

is

for

certain

but

what an

amazing

imagination

wander

around

the daily

fair

look

in a

morning

mirror

who

could

have

thought

of that

and

how much

nerve

it must

have taken

to hang

it

out there

imperfect

incomplete

impermanent

everybody

with different

ideas

about

the creative

method

and

meaning

but those

must be

evinced

in the work

so clutch

the brush

knead

the dough

assemble

the pieces

plant

the seed

play

the music

massage

the media

immigrate

into the

emptiness

invent

discover

guess

experiment

and along

the way

please

shape

a little

joy

for

somebody

a hint

of beauty

maybe

where

there

wasnt

much

and

remember

what

a work

of art

you are
