As the spirit wanes the form appears

As the spirit wanes the form appears

Pretentious poets seem to presume a personal perfection,
often oblivious to the effect of their observations and opinions.
Admonishment for lack of adherence and acquiescence annoys
the rogue writer wrought with real self-doubt. He’ll rage
against the arrogance and aggressive self-aggrandizement.
Unfortunately forums found online foment artistic folly
and encourage the erudite elitist to entreat the uneducated
to fall in line, forget artistic function and focus only on the form.

    I’m afraid I’m not as civil as Laurie, for I enjoyed the photo as much as the write. ~ M

    wow. compelling thoughts on art and writing. i wonder though, is there really any difference between the rogue writer and the pretentious poet?

    I missed the spark that ignited this flame, but powerfully “correct” piece.
