The Frugal Repast - Poem by Anthony Charles King

art is the offspring of sadness and suffering
...the beaten beggar
...syphylic prostitutes

all of the throes of joyless and hopeless love...

..the undoing of soul!
the livid pallor of flesh

...our muse.....has become....a formless shadow.. of open-eyed blindness
we are prisonners of a solitude that encloses us the stranglehold of our own arms..
