(he) Art - Poem by douglas scotney

the appearance of a painting
overcomes the enigma of its content
locking it into (he) art.
the same goes for a sculpture
whether pyramid or rock.

more arcane,
a particular poem,
a cave of dripping words,
unlocks disengagement,
revealing what is (he) art.

    He-art. Exactly. It needs to evoke emotions I believe and the only way to achieve that is engross from your pit. Your gut. I do fine art to but my emotionalism is most satisfying. Ty (Report) Reply
