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.

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.
