the Art is Life poem


Are you an artist?

Cool bro.

Hey, can u draw this tat design 4 me?

I dont know, maybe.

Haven’t yet.

But I like the art u already have.


I get you.

Cant hide, I get the meaning

of o… c u (L) t-easing

me into believing your deep?

I get you brother,

I know your deep. Know it deeper than

you care to go making

people into the artist you are and should be

with you life.


A certain, Mr Maslow talked about this.

at length, a scientist of psychic and strange and wonderful

everyday stuff. Things about

creativity being the fabric of every being?


Well he didn’t say that,

but perhaps he’d agree

I know he’d agree that people are art in time

by just being.

Believe that? Want to argue? OKyou’WIN’! like charlie Sheen


I don’t care about what you think

about me. I don’t. You can still

kick my ass tho. I concede, K?

aint mad-doggin you. u da king.


on to less angry-nasty-my-block-my cold-heart

topics, but first let me say to you,

I know. total crap. Be cool. treat ur woman right! K


L? Life? Where is art in my life, sir?

Dont know exactly mam,

but try looking under the bed.

Memories hide under there. Scraps of gloss black

and white memories.

That would look handy in a book!


You know?

Or out of the window, that bird pecking would

he never stop please? Could fascination

with birds or noticing a scar on her you never saw b4,

baby.. how’d that happen?

And she will be pleased


to open up the book of her heart

and illustrate precisely how art and life, Maslow’s right, maybe–

are the VERY common parts seeking

themselves in each other

Ying and Yang?

Why not…

threading art parts in to life giving days


and making night-shining arts to light-illumined ways

of first mending, then softening like an art, some lifeless hearts.
