Art

A Story by AndrewH
"

A short poem about a school art project. For more of my writing, go to andrewhenleywriting.wordpress.com

"

Treasured memento of wasted time,

more valuable than fractions

and treaties that built or broke nations.

Art,

or something like it to a 10 year old boy

choking on toxic paint fumes.

A blue and gold mist.

 

I think I may have liked it once,

but probably not. More likely my mother

insisted it be kept and displayed.

A certificate of creativity.

A replica

of those made by children

brighter and duller, louder and quieter, happier and sadder

than me.
