Oh to Be in Art Galleries Poem

oh to be in art galleries
“Modern Art 1” by Carter Jackson

Oh to be in art galleries
with purple and pink marshmallows
on a table in a corner
with a sculpture that I made
out of the spare parts
of my heart
and dreams.
Oh to be in art galleries
hearing the special words
of the purple and pink marshmallow man
as he talks of didactic
responses to form
in his purple and pink marshmallow words

Oh to be timeless in a temporary
purple and pink marshmallow world.

Write | A Poem by DMJ

Where are my words?
I must throw them at this screen.
I must shout at the wind
the weak metaphor wind.
It whistles in my ear,
write!
Though none may read
Write!
Though my words are wrong,
poorly uttered
wrongly put
Write!
Magnetic spots will go out
ones will be zeros
paper will rot while covering rocks
and the rocks will win
Write!
For nothing,
for no one,
for you.

toward the end,
we had time to study our situation.
As far as we could see,
our universe was expanding
and seemed to be falling
toward some unknown force
(The earth in the larger universe).
In a hundred billion of our years,
a child in the larger universe will
begin to say,
“Mommy, my balloon…”
