A Complex and Unusual Auction

Young Sol Lewitt is staring at the machine-stitched seams of your windbreaker.
Your parents told you it was because the roots could damage the foundation.

Young Sol Lewitt will want to talk to you about arithmetic soon.
You actually could appreciate that some things would always be unfair in this world.

Young Sol Lewitt always finished his vegetables when your mom cooked.
You wouldn’t describe yourself as a libertarian anymore than a polar bear.

Young Sol Lewitt then developed an affinity for the ocean and its constant horizon.
You pretty much hated anything that involved a uniform, like gym class.

Young Sol Lewitt had trouble understanding you and quickly decided never to.
You have more postcards than photographs from childhood vacations.
