Becoming art

She’s a table,
A little old,
A little rickety;
Covered with paint splotches
From all the projects
She’s helped kids work on
through the years.
She’s not a work of art –
Or is she?
(and I never really wanted
to believe this)
Assisting others
is enough;
After a while
You no longer need to do art –
You become art.
But wait –
I wanted
To make some of those splashes

I imagine all the fun and laughter made at that table. The splotches are just reminders.
