We count the broken lyres that rest
Where the sweet wailing singers slumber.


WHAT IS ART she asks
-->what isn't art?

it is no frilly text on a page

or no color on paper
---------
absence of noise--
fingers scratching
chords
...
running is art
--
so is swimming and
writing and singing and
breathing

art
art
art
sings the bird
outside my
window

is art Beautiful, then? she asks

am i beautiful? i respond
---

i guess art is,
art lives,
art breathes,

just like you

and me.

art feels,
art thinks and speaks and
whispers and
screams.
I've heard art cry,
I've seen it dream. I've also
seen it in
you

and me.
