Art as legacy

Billions living, dying, gone, Gone their legacy, love and memory, They have stepped aside, righteously or in despair

Words - rbcdart
Words is kinda a catch . All words, poems, prose, poems, and mutterings. I have tried to incorporate words into paintings. I like writing verse. My books tend to be picture books. I had a writer’s block in college. Over it now.

Billions living, dying, gone
Gone their legacy, love and memory
They have stepped aside
righteously or in despair
We make shadow puppets in their dust
pretending it is immortality (of sorts)
Do not play for a false legacy
A gentle kiss, accept instead
