stark dead

pretentious pap smeared on sanctified
walls
again and again
until almost everybody believes it is
viable.

affectations of the centuries accepted
as Art.

beware the textbooks, beware the libraries,
beware the galleries,
beware the father and the teacher.
beware the mother.

we are born into a civilization which is stunned
by overwhelming mediocrity.

what is placed before us is artifice, an
illusion, a lie.

the womb has spilled us into a sewer.

new gods are needed.

new doors must be opened.

we have waited so long for so little.

we must rip the enclosures open.

this dark stinks of us,

here.
