Artist vs Muse
Does anyone really care about the art
Or the artist…?
To me, at least–
It’s all about the muse.
People want a muse, and if they
Don’t want a muse, they want to
Be a muse.
Or at least– be amused.
I don’t think people are as interested
In Leo da Vinci as much as they were
Who was she, why was she the subject
Of this great man’s painting?
Or Yoko Ono–
The lady who broke up the Beatles
I mean– is that really even
What she did…? Couldn’t you say
Those asshats broke themselves up?
Yoko Ono was just chillin’ while everybody else was
Doing heroin I mean jesus Christ folks
Ya’ll really blame her…?
A muse is just somebody that got looked at
For a long ass time. Some people might even call
This kind of behavior –predatory!
Anyway, ain’t nobody want a group effort nowadays~~
You gotta be your own artist
And your own muse.
You’ve also gotta be your own producer
And, it doesn’t hurt
If you’re always on a juice cleanse
Because you never know
When the opportunity to be stared at
Will pop up.
