From Savagery to Civilization

                         –after John Dewey, American pragmatist

so much depends
on the invention
of art

to enlarge experience
and give it
meaning

by connecting it
with what can only be
symbolized

    ‘can only be symbolized’ therein is our challenge.

    Few words artfully offered with huge wisdom.
