Poem: The Steps

The Steps

And you work. Add a little here. Cover a little there.
You tinker. You experiment.
You mess up. That’s part of it.
Sometimes you go backwards,
cover the mistakes with whitewash
and then paint over it.

It takes far longer than anyone would imagine,
looking at the finished thing.
Simple things, it turns out,
take toil.

About this poem.

About art. About life. About life most of all.
