Shopping in the DepARTment

Mi Young Lee


There’s a little blue heart that speaks
to me, a chalkdust squiggle,
a mustard smudge.

For all the things that are yet
to come, I’ll choose that giant colon


or that little green apostrophe,
for the peace I wish I owned.

    So much to glean from so compact a masterpiece. That’s the beauty of the abstract’s hold on our imaginations! Rightly so De!

    Great choices … and great looking.

    I’m smiling, De. Seems that you like the round objects, and the artist put them in opposite corners for his reason. I hadn’t paid them much never mind.

  10. My kingdom for a little green apostrophe! Love this, De.

    Your imagery brings new perspective and perception to the art.
