Riot of Courageous Mess

love stamp


Have courage, dear one, to start a riot,
a sloppy mess of sweeping sketches.
Sprawl courageous strokes
that spill right off the paper.
If the axis of a new creation
does not spring forth from the chaos
you’ll still have scattered scraps of play
to later feast your eyes upon
and say, “Well, look.
Just will you look at that!”

Art from Corita Kent: An overshadowed pop art icon, an article about an artist (who also happened to be a nun) who used the social transformations of the 1960’s as a catalyst for her hopeful art.
