To be art worthy
Studio on Slough Road
Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Relax into this love cluttered
haven of creativity.
Every inch of wall and shelf a gallery,
of color and shapes and subjects.
Unsaid permission to keep your shoes on
and roam through the kitchen for tea,
to eat too much chocolate
and yams and four point French rolls.
Permission to set your footprints
on “private” cranberry bogs
and touch the smelly sea barf
on Point of Rocks beach.
Permission to call yourself an artist,
to be art worthy
And…your art is worthy
Is your true work
Is living and breathing and sharing.
