William F Dougherty
Anecdote: Art and Apples
True art, the activist declared, protests
societal wrongs, and militantly attests
a social vision—or remains mere artifice.
'Exactly, ' the painter said, 'protest like this'—
and held a still-life print above his head:
apples by Cézanne, sculpted yellow, red.
The zealot scoffed, snidely cried,
'Protest against what? '
'Sloppy thinking, ' he replied.
