The Web Poetry Corner - Philip Claude Andermann - Computers and the Canvas

Computers and the Canvas


Philip Claude Andermann

A child:
A blank canvas, a daub here, a daub there
is his painting,
is his world.

A trail of daubs has led humanity
always exploring
to this computerized world
of instant reproduction.

Now kids, too, live in this world of computer
painting their imagination.

But children remain handmade.

Whenever I see a child
I see that extraordinary blank canvas again
for my own life.
