Art is hidden
in the deepest cracks
and recesses
of human experience.

Even after they're dead,
you'll still not look there.

Even after we're all dead,
there'll still be art there

You refuse to look there,
because what you see
might pull you in
and keep you there for ever.

How would it feel to be
trapped with your
reflection for ever?

All your guilt and sin and
squirming pitifulness?
So you don't look there,
and it doesn't peer back into you.

But in your quietest moments,
your mind skips over the ocean,
suddenly descending into
great holes in the Earth.
