Guest Post: Life As Art

I’m walking the sidewalk and what’s in my head
is a slab of blank pavement ten paces ahead.
The voice in my mind is the cell on my ear;
I’m walking through Manch,
But I’m not really here.

And then I stop.

Sun on red brick.
A girl in a lilac summer dress;
A boy with a sketchpad and box of pencils.
An old man on a chair
On the sidewalk, watching.
An elegant turn of phrase.
Moving shadows on white lines on gray asphalt.
The smell of baking butter pastry.
The memory of the taste
Of warm chocolate.

If art becomes life, does that mean
Life is Art?
