OBJECTS OF AFFECTION ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR
Sammy and Gimlet, as the appear on the cover of their latest book, "The Dog Completed My Homework, and I Finally Passed the Course."
Who knew? Who had a clue?
That I was pink, and Sam was blue?
Modern Art just does that to you.
Am I Modrian or Klee? Grant or Bell?
Who can tell?
I'm not square. Nor hip, or hop.
I'm a dog. Tri-color, too.
Except now I'm a swirl or two.
A pink box on a mass of lines.
If I look ... and squint ... just there.
Look at Sam. His head's a block.
I've told him that. He listens ... not.
What is Modern Art,
But a very old way
To look at life
And have your way.
