the artist

December 11, 2008
By Annie Diamond, Wilton, CT

she often pauses to ask herself
why the hefty task of assigning deep
philosophical meaning
to things has fallen to them, the painters
and poets and photograph takers
of the modern world,
who truthfully are shrugging their shoulders
and ducking from questions
just as the inartistic so predictably do, only
perhaps with a more aesthetically pleasing
technique.
