Art for Sale Poem | A Summer Day | by David Michael Jackson

Art for Sale

They sat beside their table
as the people walked by.
“What is this one about”?
“It’s my soul in
color and form
which I call art
for sale in a universe
of color and form,
art for sale
with a frame
from another
soul
left at Goodwill

They sat beside their table
as the people walked into the
ten by ten pop up canopy
and looked at the flowers
and landscapes and
souls in
color and form
called art
for sale in a universe
of color and form

The wind comes up and
blows leaves down the concrete path
and the sun pokes through the clouds
and leaves shadows in the grass.
The people weave among the
ten by ten pop up canopies
and smile and talk like birds
singing
on a summer day.
The artists sit on folding chairs
noticing the people pausing
and smiling at a color or
a memory.

Janet Kuypers guest-hosts “Poetry Aloud” 4/28/18 open mic in Georgetown

        April 28th marked the first time Janet Kuypers hosted the Poetry Aloud open mic 4/28/18 in Georgetown TX, which was the only meeting like this at the Georgetown Public Library during National Poetry Month in 2018. As host she welcomed poets and musicians up in this round-robin event, and toward the end of each round-robin reading Janet would come to the front to read poetry (that sometimes related to the theme for this meeting, either “ I am not a Robot” or “Two Parades”), while reading material from her performance art collection book “Chapter 38 v1”. During the second round, she even sang a song with John on guitar that appeared in “Chapter 38 v1”, and in the final round of reading, she even read a poem (for the parades theme) from her poetry book “Close Cover Before Striking”.

    Because the man who usually starts every round of readings, Thom Woodruff, had a sort throat and could not speak at this open mic, Janet Kuypers tried to fill Thom’s shoes by reading poetry by Thom that appeared in 7 issues of the Scars Publications cc&d books “The New World”, “Forbidden”, “Respect our Existence or Expect our Resistance”, “The End of the World”, “Question Everything”, “The False Portrait”, and the to-be-relased 25-year anniversary issue of cc&d (v284), “Shining”.
