Creation of a Paradigm Shift

"We warp space and time,
then dance a jig
on the bones of
the soon to be
dead."

 

MUSEUMS OF INSPIRATION

INSPIRED BY RUBENS, TITIAN, GOYA AND SARGENT
MESMERIZED BY DA VINCI AND REMBRANDT
WORDLESSLY WANDERING
FROM ONE MASTERPIECE TO ANOTHER
I REACH OUT TO HOLD YOUR HAND
MAKING SURE THIS MOMENT IS REAL
ACROSS THE STREET WE PONDER
PICASSO, PISSARO, MONET, RODIN, HOMER, POLLOCK AND
DEGAS
FLOATING THROUGH CENTURIES
SPOKEN WITH EACH BRUSH STROKE

WE APPRECIATE
EACH MOMENT OF
HISTORY WOVEN INTO PERFECTION

Who are They

No illusions left
No games left to play
The past is your future
Who's welcome has been outstayed

I feel like I've been standing
Standing here all day
I got this stupid look upon my face
From what you just had to say

You're standing there
You're wondering
You've got questions in your eyes
You're tired of hearing the old ones
Mutter nothing but lies

This one is for you
All those left beside
The freeway they say is yours
But now they say you can't drive

They've got their foot on our heads
And our heads are on the ground
They've got us there and they're laughing
It makes them happy to see us down

So when they say they need you
Don't be a fool of mind
Don't pick up another's flag
Just to stand in line

No time left
It's all taken place
There're only six billion people
That I call a disgrace

And what of tomorrow
And who'll be left to say
There's nothing like our justice
As long as you obey

Neil Poyuzina

 

ART HAS A VOICE

Art has a voice. It doesn't speak to everyone in the same
language or degree of intensity.
It can be personal, thought provoking, calming or exciting.
Art may evoke memories-a walk into the past
Some art needs explanation, some does not.

ART IS………...
