art needs people to exist
if a painting hangs on the wall but nobody sees it, is it really art?
if a poem is read aloud but nobody reacts, did it really exist at all?
someone sent me a message regarding yesterday's reading:
"I was happy to see real poetry and not some wanker talking about the trees and the sky."
my sentiments precisely. poetry should be REAL. and it's only real if it touches people in some way.
note to self: the next time i'm inspired by a reading or any piece of art, i must tell the artist. spreading positive vibes is the best way to support the artistic community.
