Casting bells instead of cannons

Artists, intrusive
My friend Reilly Hoffman, sculpts
Intrudes upon metal with fire
Makes lotus bowls, that when dinged
Play music like Elaine McMilian
Who intrudes upon silence with guitar
Voice and poetry
Instead of sirens
Christel Highland changes bodies
With personal fabric architecture dreams
Crafted, constructed, colour
Laura colours canvas with paint
Taut drums of white fabric
Into windows of hues, places, palette
And my brother Mike changes ground
Architects, designs spaces for living
And I intrude upon blank paper
With ink, on screens with symbols
Loving: how artists intrude
Casting bells instead of cannons.

For Elaine on her birthday
