                (Sentimental Values)

 

     It’s really not a picture worthy of the name;

Five crudely figurative, annotated forms,

Sketched thinly on pink paper in black ink, with no

Æsthetic content that can be perceived therefrom.

It must have some extrinsical significance

That lends it value in its owner’s estimate.

     What contemplating artefacts as art, one tries

To separate their properties from sentiments

That aren’t appropriate to their intrinsic worth

In forms and contents, since such feelings undermine

Evaluative judgements based on qualities,

With universal meaning, that each work presents.

     This, then, is not a work of art; rather a souvenir

     Of some attractive physio…  Values aren’t always pure!.
