By any measure imaginable, art lives at the front of the line
that runs from pretty pictures to interesting things –
Today’s curator, psyched by yesterday’s bump to acting facilitator of public taste,
speaks first in an elegant lacework of circles, then dons a stern demeanor
for pronoun set recitations, and restates the case:
It is unimaginable the mad array of shapes, colors, & nudie-pics
you’d cram into museums if art were removed from schools.
