this is what it is to make art


so much time before

so much thought, little of it creative

so much of it pushing and tearing apart

the mind is the artist’s bully

the constant tormentor

full of reasons why not

ready to say ‘pack it up and settle’

or ‘it could be easier’

and then we ponder

what is easy

rita said ‘to make art is scary, you should prepare yourself for that’

no lesson plans for fear

only time and time

and more time
