Paint Brushes

On Saturday we took to our house
and with rollers and trays
we primed the whole thing
in only nine hours
our walls covered with white--
backs sore from bending
to reach the tricky ceilings
we had reached the beginning...

On Sunday we wandered down
to the old train station to see
MICA's senior art show
scotch tape dispenser wreaths
a fountain of pastry bags and coke
a star of lard and cardboard
behind the installations
shoved in corners
were paint-filled rollers and ironing boards
the materials used
to set a show in motion

The same tools
bring us art and home--
giving us a new eye
on our world
