Art is what we want it to be

Art can show us what

Words can’t say

Installation art is here

And gone. Will it remain in

Our minds after it is gone?

 

Can art tell us something we

Didn’t think we knew?

Or tell us something we didn’t

think we wanted to know?

Art might be writing, art could

be painting, art could be in

A studio or downtown in the city

Land

by Judy B-W

 

Is it dirt? Is it rocks? Is it mountains?

Is it where we farm and should there bed fences?

Is it where we walk and should it be

Concrete, cement, gravel and tar?

I grew up traveling to school on streets

Of oyster shells. Is it oyster shells

That should cover land?

 

Land is where huge trees and forests

Used to be. Michigan was huge

White pines where sunlight was hard

To find, a few generations before.

 

Tulip trees are veryt tall trees that little

birds lived in flowery tops – Is this

Where land is? Was it like this? Willq/; it be

Like this?
