Art Consumes Flame Immortal Souls

What is the curse of no time
for any artist for all artists?

Art demands time
all consuming time

times of precise reflection
times of informative focus
times of intense productivity
times of perceptive clarity
times of felt vision testimony
times of account sensitivity
times of passion commentary
times of creative outpourings
times of artistic servitude

means art more demands
than a mere pound of flesh

art demands fibres of our being
art demands neurons identities
art demands touch sound stimuli
art demands light radiant souls
art demands devotes of the mind
art demands paid vision ransoms
art demands intense internal bleeding
art demands pain waltz symphonies
art demands epic universal certainties

art demands artists lifetime creations
art consumes flame immortal souls
