Erk Thru Able Last
Dreamtime by the river’s edge,
with skyscrapers’ skyline matching clouds’
feeds the inner eye; root to the tree of art.
Because we changed this garbage—
land into a sculpture park
the people of this community live with new hope.
These are the dimensions of art,
of sculpture, of jazz:
to give us the energy of hope, the
embrace of paradox, the
overcoming of despair.
These our sculptures are made to
wake us to an ecstatic life of the spirit.
