Exhibition Dancing I (The Waltz)

Rating: 5.0
He asked was there ever a time when an artist
Would brag of his palette or brushes or oils.

She said no I don’t think so why he said well
Yesterday I was in star bucks and overheard
Three guys comparing the size of their
Hard drives and software each claiming the other’s was
Ancient and slow.
Well I think they all study art at the college,
‘Cause soon they were arguing who had more gigs
On his pixels or cad or whatever for drawing

Lot of this seemed to be in trochee hexametre. Really suited your 'he said' statement structure, giving a nice punch and the long line gave some roll and fun. Perhaps the title is a good hint of philosophical seriousness as well. This ironic piece differs greatly from the poets direct social observation work - demonstrating his versatility. Always art here.

Epic witt, here. A treat for the brain-cells. The waltz was the beginning of the collapse of Enlightenment culture. Onward and sideward, until the ladies fainted from too-tight corsets. Thanks for a hugely entertaining piece. - Will

Ha ha! I agree. Charles Bukowski, one of my favorite poets/writers of the crude 'genre', had a hard time learning to use his computer to 'create' from. I buy hundreds of those little 'composition' notebooks to write in. I simply must have a pen and paper to 'create' on. The screen, to me, feels too impersonal...but that's just me. This is a wonderful description of where 'art' is going.
