George Fluke, "'State of the Classical guitarist A drew Art' has been reworked into Ohren, of Quincy, wilfper- a wittier and faster-paced form musical interludes show than when it debuted POEM OF THE WEEK seven years ago." "But more important, I've added the moral arguments of political philosophy. If we think of art as a public asset, a political association, and yet can't come to a common definition based on purpose, how are we going to reach understanding of the pur- pose of government? "I believe arguments about a definition of art can point us in the right direction." There are people who believe that the afterlife exists in how we are remembered by the living, that we are rewarded or punished in the memories of people who knew us. Writing is a means of keeping memories fresh and vivid, and in this poem Judson Mitcham, a Georgia poet, gives his father a nudge to- ward immortality. Writing But prayer was not enough, after all, for my father. His last two brothers died five weeks apart. He couldn't get to sleep, had no appetite, sat staring. Though he prayed, he could find no peace until he tried to write about his brothers, tell a story for each one: Perry's long travail with the steamfitters' union, which he worked for; and Harvey--here the handwriting changes, ' he bears down--Harvey loved his children. I discovered those few sheets of paper as I looked through my father's old Bible on the morning of his funeral. The others in the family had seen them long ago; they had all known the story, and they told me I had not, most probably, because I am a writer, and my father was embarrassed by his effort. Yet who has seen him as I can: risen in the middle of the night, bending over the paper, working close to the heart of all greatness, he is so lost. --Judson Mitcham Poem copyright 2011 by Judson Mitcham American Life in Poetry is made possible by The Poetry Foun- dation (, publisher of Poetry magazine. op California Art Club 2012 Gold Medal recipient Ray Roberts and Plein Air Painters of America Sig- nature Members Jean LeGassick and John 13~dicin will teach in the classroom and lead outdoor work- shops at the first Surprise Valley Plein Air Painters Workshop & Conference scheduled for Oct. 4 - 7, in Cedarville.
