Aromatic SBD (or) Does it have to be beautiful to be art?

Now there’s an interesting word:
aromatic

It’s as if one takes from among the most musical and romantic

and really probably v. old words – ‘aroma’ –

and mates it with a machine-y word like ‘automatic’, huh.

Aromatic.

I wrote a poem about an SBD fart and linked it up to a Poets United post where the motif to explore was invisibility. In the poem, the SBD was actually let by a corpse. Is it poetry?

A friend of mine once told me that the collages I was making weren’t art, b/c not beautiful.

I wonder what you think. Does it have to be beautiful to be art?
