Still life of sunflowers standing in a vase
memorable landscape of crimson
autumn leaves falling from maple trees.
It’s an abstraction crafted
of circles, squares, amorphous shapes,
Rainbows of colour.
It’s stream of consciousness,
A manifestation of the mind’s eye,
a dream like Salvador Dali’s surreal
It’s Annie Liebowitz’s vision
Captured in a digital photograph
Of a model, movie star, famous person,
Someone, anyone in the public eye.
Some people say, “art is anything.”
Like a concept,
traveling into, out of the mind,
Significant about man’s
Society in which we inhabit.
like a Rubik’s cube,
or amuse with whimsy like a cartoon,
shock as if a stranger’s
mocks like the pop art of Warhol,
even screams as you stroll past.
somebody’s found object,
a ready-made, picked out of the dump,
constructed as if it were a masterpiece,
