If I wasn’t an artist, what could I be?

[2004]

IF I WASN'T AN ARTIST

 

If I wasn’t an artist I would like to be

a fish in the ocean, a shoe in the sea

 

If I wasn’t an artist I would like to be

a bush, a strawberry or a pine tree

 

If I wasn’t an artist I would like to be

a house or a home, or a whole family

 

If I wasn’t an artist what could I be?

 

Wing of a bird, wing of a bee 

The ugliest flower, prettiest flee

Hat of a stranger, strangest me
