Life without art

EarthArt by Rod McRiven (details below)

In this place without art
Language is informational.
Speech is functional.
Sound is vibration.
Movement is changing position.
The wind is agitated air.
The sun is a thing up there.
Stars occupy space.
Landscapes determine place.
Bodies are meat
and thoughts are lists.
What is wonder?
What is colour?
What is poetry
and music
and dance?
What is shape?
What is grace?
What is a soul
and what is it fed?
Does everything just cease when I’m dead?
