Abstracted

Abstracted

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

Particularly

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.
