Art is the most demanding of lovers
Cruel and abusive.
She’ll use you, and once you have served her purpose,
toss you aside.
Then, if she pleases,
she may call you at the most inopportune of moments,
demand your full attention to her every whim;
and you’ll love her and beg for more.
You feel so empty when she’s gone.
You will do whatever it takes,
suffer pain, poverty, indignities,
destroy your health,
destroy your mind,
and do it over and over again
just to have her,
fleeting, ecstatic moment to
fleeting, ecstatic moment
