Is it Art or is it Memorex

What are the risks of being alive?

I am standing, alone, in an art gallery, staring into a painting:

a man, standing alone, staring across a vast sea of voided reality.
he awaits objective compliment.

at the far side of the painting, a plastic cup lays on its side
anchored by a small amount of liquid.
it does not move except to be rocked back and forth by a small
wind passing.

I hold in one hand a straw broom, in the other a dust bin

above the man a completely blue sky holding only a bright sun
very high.
I do not cast a shadow.

below the man the dark asphalt, striped with
reflective yellow paint into organized rows
of rectangular indicators of possession.

I walk toward the cup with the pace of intent.

without warning there appears in the
bottom left corner of the painting a murder of crows
pecking apart a dis-carded paper bag.

should the man continue toward the cup,
break off in a different direction toward the crows,

or do I leave that world to its own resolution/s
and move on to another painting.

What are the risks of being alive?

Artist's Description

This may seem insipid, and perhaps you are right.
I am tempted into explanation. I resolve to trust you.
