The existential paradox of artistry.


Stranger

the artist in his cage
creates a self-indulgent stranger
living for a while
a vicarious life
scraped clean of history
the desperate denial
of meaning and morality
a barely noticed nod
to the uncaring gallery

That last couplet is wonderful.

This poem really captures the myth of the rockstar artist. Well done
