Nourishment

I do not need art


Like I need food


I am often indifferent about eating


My appetite so finicky


Food will rebel against my system


I do not need art


Like I need air


Some days I long for smoke in my lungs


Or my breath betrays me while my heart


Pounds and mind panics


Rather I need art


Like I need water


Life giving liquid in 6-8 glasses a day


Cleansing rain that washes down


Scribbles of chalk and grime


I need it like the canyon needs the river


To shape it to the will of the current


Wear it away to smoothed edges


Revealing layers of beauty deep in the land


I devour, drink, guzzle art 


My body is 60% water


It is so much of who I am that


I cannot live without it
