Are You Satisfied With An Average Life?

Art triumphs over suffering

so then why am I only venting the latter

and not praising the former

perhaps because I’m cowardly

since there’s nothing transcendent about just complaining

there’s nothing divine about kvetching

nothing revolutionary about spelling out hurt

without adding something beautiful to the blood
