Bird Cage

It’s not the “art” that makes

the artist insane

It’s the mundane

that is the bane

of her existence.

The trick is transformation;

jumping over the fence of the mind

into the imagination.

For it is not being over there

that makes her crazy.

It is knowing, long before she leaps,

that she’ll have to break her own heart

just a little bit each time she

returns to the world of the everyday;

breathless, paint splattered,

the last word still dripping wet

off the end of the pen.
