All things attract

All things attract

Say that all things attract
           say that there is method
in beauty
           that there is purpose too
and all art is found
           actively discovered
and chosen and pulled out
           from anonymity and displayed
paraded before the senses
           and that there is always
measurement and dimension
           intensities and degrees
of subtlety and that sounds
           and colours and textures
and shapes and tastes
           on the tongue all rhyme
that the eye and the ear
           bind it all together
and have done so
           from the moment
that the mind was born
           and with it love
and the walls of caves
           were filled with
sensual narrative
           and that dance and music
and song are all
           in the nature of breath
