sitting across from each other

the vain artist insists that what they are doing

has never been done before

that what they have just created is something truly

original

that which brings with it no remnant of prior influence

&

therefore no credit to be given to anyone else---

the arrogant intellectual

masturbates alone to the ideas they have &

like style nazis they goosestep with pointing fingers

insisting to us all how we should go about expressing

ourselves---

the vain artists smile back at the

arrogant intellectuals & in one big

circle jerk

they cum on each other in the name of

narcissism.
