Egon Schiele / Autumn Tree, 1909 Thx to Stephen Ellcock
We write in darkness. We love
in alleys. We breathe into beige
paper bags. Anything to mollify
the confusion. Anything to simplify
This is why we NEED feminism.
How do I nicely turn him down without getting murdered?
the problem, as i see it:
contrary to popular belief, feminism is not a movement against men, it is a movement for women.
and contrary to popular belief, men’s rights activism is not a movement for men, it is a movement against women.
The new Kara Walker is just as good as I had hoped (at Domino Sugar Refinery)
i should be shy to attach any comment to to these masterworks from the master poet Robert Montgomery, but i’m gonna because i must say something more than they to the artists i follow, who follow me.
i know what it is to resent the success of inferior, but successful, artists.
i know what it is to experience one’s own brilliance- and wonder bitterly where it went in the morning.
i understand screaming fuck it, fuck you and fuck the loathsome bug which is me
i get the bitter irony of demanding recognition from what i’ve transcended, from that which i do not recognize as legitimate…
i know the system thrives on my status anxiety, but everyday i participate vigorously
i understand the shame attending this envy, resentment and self-contradiction.
so… if you haven’t already unfollowed, write me.
with love, rich
one of my favorite artists (I have probably posted a dozen times before)
