My Limited Experience With Abstract Art

The Day Of The "art" Show

I don't know what the hell it is

I simply don't!

Now, stand there holding my head

sideways

and wax intelligent?

I won't!


Standing there with my arms folded

upturned wineglass

with pinky out on the one hand,

and on the other hand

I think it foolish

to stand there sounding "british"

when iv'e never been

and I have to look again

when you ask me, of this monstrosity...

"What do you see?"

and that's just it

I don't see ...

well

you know


and honestly, maybe I can't see

'cause I have no pedigree

and obviously i'm not the only one to see

since their escorting me out the front door!

      Thank you Debbie... and yes I was indeed not "making ' fun of but defintely having fun with a certain culture, and no particular "art-form"... it just always amazes me; what is "in", and who gets to define that.

      Indeed Laurinzo, it may well be true that I have knowledge of the "finer" things in life especially when it comes to talented poets, of which you are one. :)

      Well thank you so much, what a compliment from a woman of such esteem, and i'm certain a knowledge of the "finer" things.

      Always great to hear from you my friend...

      I appreciate you so much

      I think you speak for many people with this poem Laurinzo. The ability to appreciate anything in life comes with the corresponding degree of awareness. I like the line:

      "and honestly, maybe I can't see

      'cause I have no pedigree"

      Nice rhyme. Good write and voting awesome.

      Maria.

      Great one Laurinzo! We have all been there, wondering what the hell this "art" is doing.

      Epi is right about Amy, and Tess the Scribbler is another one.

      ....damn you're good, man! And I am so pleased I am ahead of Miss M from down under and we can compare notes of her - lol lol

      I don't mind abstract art - it's like a feeling - or a great line I once heard in a movie - art is like an infection, some people get it and some people don't - I think that was what you were trying to convey here - but with your very own unique style of humor - of which even the epi-man is envious - lake erie time ontario canada 12:22am

      and please as a favor to me because she will love your writing too - check out the writing/poetry of my buddy Amy Becherer
