David Smith “Its existence will be its statement”

this sculpture will not be the mystical abode
of power of wealth of religion
Its existence will be its statement
It will not be a scorned ornament on a money changer’s temple
Or a house of fear
It will not be a tower of elevators and plumbing with every
Room rented, deductions, taxes, allowing for depreciation
amortization yielding a percentage in dividends

David Roland Smith (March 9, 1906 – May 23, 1965)
