ART WARS II
This curious sanctum of sand made stone,
smooth and cool as ice caves – mute
The empty windows of used boxes
do not attempt to thread the mist of
to habits ease of will like water. Not
like vacant houses
conjure the scream burnt figures like
in old magazines.
The monumental blunt facticity the popular art
well embellish. Note how seldom old
are chiseled again; notice new names
on weathered stones.
The ancient obelisk yet points -- proclaims!!
Does it tell of the things we used to
be found of here,
before we went beyond one-ups-manship,
before we discovered – how glamour
