Darling Lets Be Artists

A whip of a brush across canvas like a knife, cutting into delight and

You’ve created the slash of creativity

The first blow in a series of punches that would become a painting.

The twirl of a pottery wheel like the twirl of a dancer,

Her tutu spins out, long legs hide crushed toes and blood, blood, blood.

Cracked hands shape length, beauty along with the Earth.

The first gasp of breath as a baby is born

like the breath a musician takes before stepping onto the stage

Like the breath he takes before instrument meets lips

Because living is revolutionary

Because loving is revolutionary

Because art is revolutionary

And darling? Let’s be artists.
