Ideas in geometric and other designs

Opposed to the forms of nature

Perhaps these painted marks

Should exist only as mental concepts

Their purpose never known to the uninitiated

And I am such.


Not that I dislike any of them


Indeed there are some whose provenance

Really does seem irrelevant

For they give

A peculiarly aesthetic satisfaction.


But for the most part

The uninitiated and I am such

Who would discard

Painting by numbers

Remain no more convinced by its inverse

Numbing by painters.
