Picasso Plastic Stretches Driven - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

self proclaimed gurus
tried to follow for awhile
they did not want to learn

self proclaimed gurus
wanted to be admired praised
wanted hero worship

mini gurus
ego mind waited
breath bated

but no answer came
no return recognition
mutual praise ad-lip

no return following
no apprentice adoring
no reciprocal listing

return favour
return folly
return fabrics

Picasso is busy about
his own creations paintings
sculptures ceramics

Picasso is stage directing
cubist movement collages
constructed plastic sculptures

Picasso mind student in revolt
lacked discipline disliked formal
instruction his own rules wrote

father juvenile tutoured
academic realism blossoms
bleed categorized labels

artistry breath lionized
shadow retrospective hunted
reinterpretation resulted

blue period
rose period
african period

influenced cubism?
neoclassical?
classicism surrealism?

classicist surrealist?
new objectivity?
art as limp terms post?

event creation works
applied retrospectively?
blab fit in box conventionality?

blah blah blah academics ctitics
do not even know golden rule
of art do create now today now

language literature
sights smells senses
art revolt revolt

some are born not to lead
some are born not to follow
some are born merely to do

revolutionary
revolutionary
revol utionary

driven by images impressions
inner voices obsessions compulsions
insights howling in mind gulf

f-off let the man work work
behind his pain of palm print glass
paintbrush pencils crayons
