WE ARE ARTISTS, EVERY ONE

Image result for greek statue

We are artists, every one.
We see more in the shade than in the sun.
We see more of the twisted body on the couch
Than art can depict, never mind “My kid could do that.” Ouch!
We see more in the laughter of Valerie
Than we see in an art gallery.
Valerie really hurt me. See her selfie?
Valerie has been on my mind all day.
Greek statue, you are great, but you won’t make Valerie go away.

    And I thought you were speaking
    of Paul Valéry.
    No matter how you couch it
    the joke is on me…

      No, it’s a girl who broke the poet’s heart.

      Paul Valery. That’s very funny, though! Ha Ha

      And of course the rhyme was used before by Paul McCartney in Maxwell’s Silver Hammer—though it wasn’t an art gallery, it was a courtroom gallery…

      Paul Valery….ha ha ha I love it.

        Tom, I like it when you laugh.
        And thanks for clinching the Patriotic Superbowl for all us poetic deplorables.

    I know you don’t always enjoy YouTubes posted in these threads…
    if I was to post one here it would be “Artists Only” by Talking Heads.
    Do you like them at all?

    It’s a shame the Art in the Gallery is lame
    because of the Art World Shame
    Also Lame is that My Art in No Gallery does display
    so all those who would come now stay away
