About Breed

Isn’t art useless

if it only mirrors man

but never changes him?


Yet it consumes me –

at the same time giving life to my very sensibility.

And even though there might be no value in it,

without it I couldn’t estimate my own….


So this never-ending  affair goes on –

even though it may never bear seed.

And the word is born

even if it never gets read.


But art, my old lover –

until the grave

I’ll be forever trying to penetrate you…

hoping to make you loyal

to me as I am to you

so that we can breed.

                                         Otherwise what else if that isn’t our destiny?
