Poetic Reflection – ” Handlers “

HANDLERS 
 
Art 
handlers handlers 
friends 
acquaintances 

convince you 

pinch you 

until you crack 

that you don’t know – you! 

that you sucked 

schmuck… 

Art is 

owned, 

grown, 

by the generator 

not the 

perpetrator, not the confiscator 

lose your faith in your 

own mind – 

let them ride 

on the side 

of your coattails 

You were so young 

so unsure 

without you …they… 

yet you still refuse to believe, 

to concieve 

in anything 

even yourself 

unless your handlers say 

A -OK 

art 

handlers 

they do not mix. 

(Van Gogh, Da Vinci, Artemesia – nada handlers,  great spirits) 

Circles of fire, circles of fear — think…

 

Your forgotten work awaits you…
