Hotel Art – A Poem by Brandon White

Friends, I hope you’re having a wonderful week. Wednesday blew in on an icy breeze and brought with it this free verse piece inspired by my strange fascination with hotel artwork. As random a subject as I can imagine! I hope you enjoy it!


Hotel Art:

Like a sneeze
upon the canvas

A hollowed-out
confection

Reproduced by uninspired,
paid hourly brushes

Bargain bin
Monett

Discount
Dalí

For brand
not heart

Financial
windfall

For the
artist,

A blessing?
A curse?

Does it
matter?

Put your
ear to it

and listen
for a heartbeat


-Brandon White

  1. Posted my comment on this already, on IG but I’ll add that hotel art never really catches my attention much…although deep down I hope there is some inspiration…I wonder if there really is…
