Art at the Tire Shop

_____________________________________

I found art in the local tire store

While waiting for four new wheels and rear brakes

I have to wait, what more can I ask for?

*

What’s hidden inside is a mystery

It’s original form is history

*

Now a focal piece and a chair no more

Was the start of this a small mistake?

Or has the creator done this before?

*

You can find art in the strangest places

Beyond museums and display spaces

*

What artwork do I miss as I explore

Gathering groceries, addressing toothaches

Adding some excitement to what may bore

*

I need to live with my eyes open wide

Just never knowing where beauty does hide

*

Art is a lump covered in labels galore

At flea markets and on grocery store cakes

Or the dark doodles on a bathroom door

*

The art you see is in your state of mind

To what you call art others may be blind

*

It is of you reader I do implore

Remember in art there is no mistake

A happy accident someone will adore

*

Art is more than purchases from the store

It’s stickers and stencils and meter breaks

It’s more than home furnishing decor

It can be a chair at the tire store.
