The “problem” only comes
when the critic says “that’s not art.”
It is this denial of the art of life
that makes life undeniably mundane.
Fine if you want to live that way,
but perhaps if you didn’t criticize
you might find that there’s
nothing in life to be critical of.
But therein lies your place.
that you would be nothing
if you didn’t judge.
You would not be able
to distinguish yourself
from that which is around you.
And YOU want to be the art.
