The Eyes Have It

By: - Oct 08, 2014


Spotted in Harvard Square

You’re that critic

Hostile confrontation

You spent ten minutes at my show

Al Ford’s gallery off Atlantic Avenue

Trashed it

Oh yes I recalled

Circling the exhibition

Describing every painting

Mostly verticals

Pubescent girls on bikes

Huge sensual innocent eyes

Perky breasts


Glowing Globe article

Former computer programmer

Morphed as artist


Spent too much time

Back then

Proto post modern

Today probably

Whitney Biennial

Like Lisa Yuskavage

Or John Currin

Who knew

Just a few moments

Lasting impressions

Decades later

Still see that show

Too vividly

Now writing about it

Every artist should get

Such bad reviews
