Why I hate Alex Ross
Where am I? -everyone

Reality is not an art.
It is a structure built
on no imagination,
an avatar of anti-voids
and portrait-painted vacuums.
If I wanted to see
Superman as Superman- I would
dream of a worse place
with no spandex,
no capes.

I wish
for gloss, glitz
primary colors that shock
and startle - screaming
as they go "I am Fantasy;
I am fun"
with a capital FU.

I cannot see myself
in a real face,
drawn so clearly
that it's symbolic
representative state
is lighter
than Kryptonian gasses.
There is no room
for me in there,
when the wrinkles
on his brow,
the sparkle of light,
and shadow is filled
with a singular
uniqueness.

Current Mood: cynical cynical
