Not drawn to it

It's humid and he likes it.
Birds and frogs and sirens and
air conditioners and thunder
He painted from 9 until 4.
Today acrylic, tomorrow watercolor.
He has the summer for this.
School starts on Monday and he can work on a larger scale.
He is just starting.

He got an announcement from a gallery about a show.
The young proclaim their right to show their work.
He did.
As usual  the artist and work were politically correct
 and derivative,
Once he was just out with a MFA
and hungry to state his stature.
Today they are not Drawn to him.

Not enough

There is not enough time.
To absorb it.
Too much to hear.
Too much to read.
Too much to see.
No time to sit and .
Then I want to do it again
because I cannot absorb it.
