I'm writing this to offend you #3

by Gavin M Roy

You’re so pretentious
you think art is not a skill
“It’s emotion and going beyond boundaries”

Ironically it’s because of this that
You will not be a Hemingway
Nor a Van Gogh
Not a Bukowski
Or even a Seuss
A true artist is an artisan
Who crafts sentences with precision

Not just a rebel with a pen


Author's Note: Hey, I never said I was an artist or writer. I actually think I said I maim and butcher words.
