The Book-Art Show
The art instructor hung a student show.
Her class used unread books as
Raw materials for visual art.
One was a lamp: “Books turn me on!”
“Sweetness in books” was represented by a large blue cupcake.
Several pieces featured flowers.
The printed matter was rather new,
Not the worn, dusty relics which I thought
Would be all the students could find.
[I went to work this morning, thinking the sinuses had dried and headache was gone.
Wrong. These poems were written in a journal at home.]
