Art is where the inspiration strikes and snares your imagination. The venue of little note, the results all that will be judged.

objets d’art ?

 

he muses over many dated pastiches

their jargon dated and unremarkable

yet inexplicably spinning, softly speaking

holding sway with an impassioned draw

 


contradictions of art and entertainment

smiles, snickers and chortles overwhelm

a study in contrast of intellectual play

muses of nights when muddled thoughts

of pub mavens scribbled ginned ink on paper

 


mid-bar the battle line of creative activity

sobriety spoke in measured tones of sanity

inebriation was boisterous demanding rule

thick tongued expression spoke too often

 


comely bodacious women of the night

urged the slovenly on to inane projects

where over indulgence directed creativity

literary insanity twisted slurs into objets d’art

Cleverly written poem. You take us into the head of an artist, whether it be on the canvas or a piece of paper. Great write.

when did that sun set...in this world

Dylan Thomas, for one, would I'm sure identify with this extraordinarily insightful and astute write, dear Jon! The whole build is fabulous, but I particularly love the final stanza - so immediate and totally capturing of the stumbling, fumbling brilliance of the minds behind those "thick-tongued expressions". xx

art is in the eyes of the beholder especially when bodacious women aid in transforming inane projects into literary slurs :]
Reviewed by Sage Sweetwater 11/14/2010
The subject intrigues me! objets d'art requires more than smashing the vase, and still yet, some insist a unicorn acquire zebra stripes and start pulling a Budweiser carriage their way...I love art, the more controversial, the better...when a piece of art sparks a firestorm, it is then received as pure frigging art! Anyone who has a genius for climbing into other people's skin is the cornerstone of success...the real art revolution isn't about booty-breast size, the Versaces or Pradas you buy, or the Lexus you drive, but about creative blood, sweat and tears, and I mean that in the 60s music group as well! Be well, my dear Jon...Do something nice for yourself this coming week...Blessed Be.

Love,
Sage

You spin my head here, Jon, I'm moved in every sense back and forth through the evaluation of what is beautiful and worthwhile and indeed lasting...and I feel the process of not only creating something but of the difficulties doing so and the inspiration that drives one to compulsion.
This, My Friend, I save.

Jon, let it be known that your art is as readily appreciated
and treasured as the depth of friendship you inspire in the
eyes and the heart of this beholder. Thank you, my friend.

Yes! ""objets d'art" are everywhere
even in the slur of moments of an intoxicated swim
or the rash hard light of reality & insanity
your words are too artful Jon in the form
and the delivery as you sculpt our thoughts
