in progress

i'm a longtime patron

of the art of

leaving things unfinished

i don't know where

everyone's obsession with completion

came from

but sometimes

there is beauty to be found

in an unfinished work

in its as-yet-to-be-realized potential

the work remains in

that gorgeous state of possibility

and perpetual growth

of static evolution

and the next time someone asks

"you gonna finish that or what"

you can refer to paul cezanne

who according to legend

once told his mother that

"finishing things was a goal for imbeciles"

i wouldn't go that far :)

but i do so love it when things remain
