An Homage to the Arts by Russell Rosander

Your brain under the influence of art.

I bow to the improbability of Music.
I bow to the impossibility of Art.
I bow to the incongruity of Poetry.
I bow to the inadmissible absurdity of the existence
of mankind and life itself……
and the indefinable and indefensible
Imagination that conceived it.

— Russell Rosander

An artist and poet living in the Costalegre of Mexico, Russell Rosander is also a co-founder of the Bar None Group. The Poet Laureate of Barra de Navidad hosts weekly readings and discussions on poetry, art, music and literature...but mostly poetry at Chynna's Backstage Bar and Blue Wave Cafe. You can find more of his writing at Russell Rosander Short Stories.

Homage is from Russell's 2019 chapbook of poetry Messages from the Other Side of Light. He has four other limited edition volumes of poetry — Heart of One, The Devil is the Creator, MotMots Emergency and Seeds Awakening — available for purchase.
