Eternal art


Two peppers
        painted for no reason
green and white pigment
        on a background
of cadmium yellow
        on a circle of wood :
rough surface
        rough texture

The old argument
        art versus nature
rehearsed down
        the centuries :
that which lives
        and breathes
and that which may
        last forever

John Lyons
