Final Poem by May’s Poet of the Month

It Amazes Me How I Heart the Hazy Art
I tried to maintain straightfacedness
Is  taking  paintings’  places
At our public art palaces.”
Said a sad man in line, up ahead,
Detail  has its beauty..but the thing
Is..A twin image is less interesting.”
This made me mention McLuhan,
Not the man, but the manuscripts I read.
It amazes me how I heart the hazy art,
The work we co-create;
The “unfinished”  poem we read our  way
Then we’re on our way to one ending,
I know this exquisite piano piece
Close yr eyes, you visit new skies, and no ending,
The abstract film, the blurry print..
All  happy accidents..
Careen to you, Immense
Oh we went on and on,
This man in line and me,
“Some Wisdom of Impressionism”
We agreed it would indeed
Go on and on and on.
It’s  just maybe
Ill- defined.
A painter puts on a mark
Three steps back
Have a looksee
Advance three steps
Add some more  to see
Three steps back
One two and one   dip and dab
one two  one  three
Stand back and see
