MAIN AND SUBORDINATE
What may appear a contradiction
Is often the extension of a viewpoint
From the main perspective to a subordinate
And tangential one, or vice versa,
So that, whilst a general trend
Is discernible in the historical evolution
Of the subject in question,
Subordinate or peripheral trends
Are also to be discerned, if one has
The desire or ability to change one's viewpoint.
There is a particle aspect to every electron,
A wavicle aspect to every proton,
And although these may be subordinate
To the main aspects, or general perspective,
Nevertheless they exist and should be
Taken into account if a comprehensive picture,
Necessarily paradoxical, is ultimately to emerge.
One cannot presume that all artists follow
A rigorously logical course.
There are always anarchic and arbitrary
Employments of any given medium,
Be it paint, light, stone, or whatever.
But, as a rule, they won't preponderate!
