An old one. I can’t remember much about it; a child asked me “what is art?” and I came up with a non-answer in the form of a title and poem.

"As We Peel Back The Layers Of The Artist's Anticipated Level Of Engagement, We Find Numerous Sources Of Radical, Inclusionary, Destructive Creation Visions Constructed In Such A Manner That One Would Have To Lack All Sensation In Order To Dehumanize This Rendition Of Our Given Subjective Realities" typewriter poetry by billimarie

“As We Peel Back The Layers Of The Artist’s Anticipated Level Of Engagement, We Find Numerous Sources Of Radical, Inclusionary, Destructive Creation Visions Reconstructed In Such A Manner That One Would Have To Lack All Sensation In Order To Dehumanize Such An Authentic Rendition Of Our Given Subjective Realities”

A
boy asked
me about art.

Art
I said
comes from the heart.

That is beautiful! And quite possibly the best post title ever. It made me laugh out loud.

    Thanks, Richard–this is certainly one of my favorite titles, though probably not SEO compliant πŸ˜‰

    (I have to admit, one of the things I miss most about university is coming with ridiculously academic sounding titles for my English papers!)

    PS: Did you get the letter? πŸ˜›
