I Doubt This Is a Proof

Toni Morrison 
Has claimed all good art
Is political.

Art is never good,
It follows. But that’s not good 

Enough. Apolitical
Art, she suggests, can’t exist,
Because those who strive

To be apolitical
Are political
By showing they love

The status quo. Art trying
To be apolitical 
Therefore can be good,

But it’s evil? I recall
When I was a child
Being told all truth

Was God’s truth. A doubt
Only came from the devil.
That it was a doubt was proof.
