ART FOR OUR SAKE
Art’s how we come to see the mystery,
Through others’ eyes of our humanity:
Just who and what and where and why we are
(Besides the dust of some exploded star),
How our complexity of consciousness
Could rise to the degree of our success
In comprehending from the parts the whole
And what, at last, we’ll know about our goal.
It’s artists who’ll intuitively perceive
What others will eventually believe,
For as they probe their souls, the Ultimate
Will gradually unfold to human wit,
And finally we’ll fully comprehend
Not only our beginning but our end.
