New Work in 2015 17


cans of metal creating finished hills and valleys,

often in a junk pile of discarded trash.

what could be found on the ground,

is now part of my sculpture.

inside was once dog food and some corn,

now the purpose is to be a design.

round shape and metallic look,

far different from a can of food.

things i know go together,

just one new shape.

keeping to a single material,

without a bottom to stand on.

i just want people to look,

the way that kids play and understand.

open your mind so that you see,

it is possible to look for new meaning in the ordinary.
