The following piece was presented at Jersey City Writers’ genre event – Jersey Plums Poetry Reading. Please enjoy.
Each of us has his own art –
The scientist’s: a physical fruition
Of a formularization,
The salesman’s: a conversation
Spiced with nonchalant persuasion,
The painter’s: a negotiation
Between brush and imagination.
We have our sameness.
It is in our ever-reaching hands
And the godliness in our eyes,
Our persistence itself persisting
In our infinite pursuit toward
The asymptote of perfection.
