B: Iiii: Hardenedarsiscism - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Artists needing
Softer form of love,
Feel the call of gutter,
Turn away from fashion
Feeding on itself
Up on the highest shelf,
Peering over glasses
At concerns of other classes,
Out of reach and fitting
Only hardened arses.

    Arsisism, cynicism and an unreachable abyss and chasmism. The mock empathy as thinly veiled condescension is palpable and perfectly and distinctively unpalatable, and therein lies the power of unbridled contempt. (Report) Reply
