Treasure Island

douglas scotney

(boomer / Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia. Resides in Adelaide)

(he) art


the appearance of a painting
overcomes the enigma of its content
locking it into (he) art.
the same goes for a sculpture
whether pyramid or rock.

more arcane,
a particular poem,
a cave of dripping words,
unlocks disengagement,
revealing what is (he) art.

    He-art. Exactly. It needs to evoke emotions I believe and the only way to achieve that is engross from your pit. Your gut. I do fine art to but my emotionalism is most satisfying. Ty (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
