The Artist 

Rick Plummer

I once was a child

I once was a student

A husband, a father, a dentist 

Once

not forever

Fatherhood gave grand-fatherhood

Dentistry gave way to artistry

A chance to ponder mysteries

Worthy temporality

Honoring the gift of life

My marks on paper will outlasts me

A smudge

Of who I was

Perhaps, they'll  also

Maican me un-crazy
