Left right, left right – Black Zag I by Louise Nevelson

Black Zag I by Louise Nevelson

Left right, left right. Lost in the maze of life we take a turn when we are told to. Although we are not robots, something makes me think that we are.

Left right, left right. What if I turned right instead of left? No one does that here, no one ever crosses lines. Everyone lives in this pre-constructed world.

Left right, left right. To think.

Left right, left right. By my.

Left right, left right. Self. M.

Left right, left right. Y.

Left right, left right. Sel.

Left right, left right. F.
