Sell


Artists are
posers
observers
starers
puppets that move in the same few directions
over and over again
in order to create something that makes
your mind
go in every direction
they see everything
from their table stand
to buy or sell
that is the question
to create
or hallucinate
imagining that you are a part
of society just because
you’re in it
contributing nothing
could be okay
but
an artist
gives
don’t buy
sell
adorn your hell
make it pretty
with your desires and wondrous thoughts of possibility
live in a paradise of intentions
reflected from pieces of art
the intention to love
the intention to grow
the intention to stand upside down
and live in a different world this way
be more beautiful
than anything you’ve seen
this side of illuminated
if you only imagine
you cannot create
then there will be nothing
when you are gone
and no one will remember you
as if you never existed
you were merely put into existence
move your paint
your ink
your arms
your instruments
life must evaporate
to show that it’s renewable
durable
consistent
persistent
of value
sweat it out
excrete your desires on canvas
if you have to
squeeze out your soul
eliminate
your impossibilities
sell

Create


I is so tired
and I don’t know why
maybe it’s because
I’m always trying
to do the right
thing
say the right thing
at the right time
in the right way
not too fast
and not too slow
I try to be perfect
and then I worry that
it was not
perfect enough
and I worry a lot
like
when I wake up
every morning
I think about what I did
or said
yesterday
instead of
thinking about what
I’m going to do or say
today
should be different
if I can think differently
I don’t know what
this should be
like
but
I know it should not be
like
that
so I read
so I run to clear my head and clean my blood
so I listen
so I meditate
and ultimately
what I must learn to do
every
single
day
is
create
