A School of Green Fish in acrylic (20"x24") AVR 2015
If by being green means mimicry to vegetation,
to defend yourself from predation;
to be bold among your enemies and your kin,
but It’s just a flimsy shield of your skin.
If by being green you capture the rays of the sun,
to make food and oxygen for everyone,
you dream of youthfulness like the silly Sybil;
but only plants have the chlorophyll.
If by being green you keep company with the young,
with your brood and the children around;
to be different from others the key to diversity,
it’s also the passport to liberty. ~
