So I went back one more time. In my original review of Carrie Mae Weems exhibition of work by the African American artist, I had time to fully experience half the exhibition. With this additional visit, I was able to view the remaining exhibits and spend time with some of my favourites from the rest of the show.

In this room
Where red tiles of images coat the walls
Each with a single emphasis
I must sit

Take it in
What does it mean
Why am I drawn here
Is it memory?

There is but one item in a frame
No context explained

So I must sit and take it in
And try to give it meaning
Beyond that, that is it’s intention

I must know
I must understand
Why I am drawn here
