Plaster People

Wipe Feet!

Do not go in Gallery!!

Clean up downstairs

and exit Out Back

sign in the hallway outside sculpture studio, Castleton State College


Among the paintings,

installations of true Art

the Plaster People blunder,

powdery tracks wrecking

the good carpet,

powdery fingerprints

defacing all that is

canonical and clear.


One can’t have them

scattering their dust,

clouds and billows,

the stuff of stars.


The Plaster People in their

poofy hordes trample

up from the foundations.

They have buried

every civilization in turn.

Oh, look on their creative

struction, and despair!


A friend who teaches at Castleton hung this sign up in the Arts Center there.
