correlation is arbitrary; it is but an eyelash on an untrimmed toe.

art... ist

Poets are the greatest dancers of the century 
They dance around the point with unmatched eloquency
They describe how much the grass is colored green
Then they use another shade of green
To describe the same green grass

I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
I’m important, unique, and fun.
I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
Praised for the minimal work that I’ve done.

Writers put a lot of effort in telling their stories
They daydream about concepts and productivity
“To die was an art” because you don’t have a personality
What they lack in originality 
They compensate with an English degree

I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
For self-expression, individuality.
I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
The poster-child of meritocracy.

Artists like to think that they give hope to humanity
They find beauty in spite of the rife negativity
Their canvas is proportional to the size of their head
They put a piece of themselves in each of their pieces
That’s why they get to call them “masterpieces”

I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
I’m young and wild and free
I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
I don’t have a stable salary

My craft will continue to outlive my name
My work will survive as my body decays
My mind will be known and my genius be shown
And my self will be thrown away
My pages preserved and my books are reserved
My verses rewrote and my words are adored
My paintings restored and my canvas reborn
And I’m reduced to an underscore

Because I’m...

A poet. A writer. An artist.
I’m important, unique, and fun.
I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
Praised for the minimal work that I’ve done.

I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
For self-expression, individuality
I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
The poster-child of meritocracy

I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
I’m young and wild and free
I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
I don’t have a stable salary

I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.

I’m a poet. A writer. An artist.
