against art

nihilistic poetry

I am
aware
that I
have no
meaning

that all
words
are only
ineffective
abbreviations
of the infinite

that
my choices
are
irrelevant
to what
exists

I am
aware
this has
no significant
value

and all
art
is
powerless

against
a mystical
minute
of silence.

 

 

 

One thought on “against art

  1. ‘Then reached the caverns measureless to man,
    And sank in tumult to a lifeless ocean:
    And ‘mid this tumult Kubla heard from far
    Ancestral voices prophesying war!’

    – Coleridge – Kubla Khan
