Apocalypse Art

Sterile ceramic gallery
White room
Every surface seen

A lady wearing a suit of grey angles
Stands behind a desk 
Of polished glass

A rubber smile stretches her money moulded face
As people walk through the gallery door
It snaps back into arrogant indifference as they pass

Red lips
A door to teeth contrived
Visually pretty
A prophecy

Nausea coaxing words mechanically repeated
Explaining pictures on gallery walls

Grey critics nod their approval
Their herd moves
Feedback buzzing
Hidden speakers prepare another plastic synopsis of art

In a corner of the gallery
Hangs one blank canvas

The critical masses gather
The speakers have nothing more to vomit
Machines sputter confused
Yet there it hangs

The crowd was forced to think

Then there was blood

Minds no longer realise reaction’s consequence
So long  with orders
Subconscious flashing screen’s slaves


The woman’s red lips can no longer be seen
Walls no longer white
Pristine glass desk dripping  red
Perfect raindrops of vein release

From the gallery door
One white

    Wow....this was so moving. The way you play with words is fascinating and fresh...the ending sad. This is a work of art.

    This beautifully disturbing poem evokes thoughts the deadly consequence of outsourcing One's interpretation of the inherent truth in Art David. This write creates a fantastic mental scene. " Perfect rain drops of veins release..." that's awesome! J.A.B.
