Muse: Smoke Break

Two people, prisoners to their habit,
and otherwise ill-matched, 
stand beneath smokey carcinogens 
entwined above their heads,
neither doing the other any favors
 and calling it love.

The Queen of street art does it again.

Thank you, Dive. One question - if I can see all this stuff that looks like Motherwell painted it, why can't I paint it myself?

For the same reason I can appreciate Maria Callas singing "Tosca", but cannot sing it myself....
Some of us are made that way and others are not.

Hey f1f3etc! You're home!? How's Sieg?

I went to see the Ai Wei-wei exhibit at the IMA. Finally. I found him to be an excellent photographer and craftsman with a wonderful ability to make insights into human behavior. Another man who's made that way, while I make a scratch at it once in a while.
