Coup De Artist (Minneapolis)

I know so many Authors, Artists, and Laureates who know it.

 

Just ask,

Everyone in Minneapolis is an Artist, MC, or Poet.

#Fact.

 

Not surprisingly,

Around the Twin Cities there is so much trash.

 

Read, React, Gasp.

 

Ubiquitous by passion apparent;

I can’t say its all on the same level, but there is measurement in ounces, right?

 

From sponsored acts of grandeur to Dylanesque Crass-

They say this is all I do, think of the followers I’ll attract.

 

Buy my book.  I am a published author.

But who isn’t?

Buy my art.  I am a famous artist.

But we can see through the gimmick.

Buy my CD.  I am an MC.

Your friends would love it for Christmas.

 

I guess I just missed it…

 

I know you.

You bike too.

You write too.

If you don’t already, I know you’d like to.

Can I invite you to read me?

 

I think I like you.  Untrue.  I think I’ll leave.

 

Sounds familiar, sounds like the past.

Almost like an act I can’t quite grasp.

 

See me?

Agree with me?

 

I like the way you talk about your passion, your art.

But first you must start.

And stop if it doesn’t truly come from the heart.

 

Pen to paper,

Brush to paint,

You talk a lot about what you create.

Everyone talks all the same.

 

I can tell you what it ain’t.

 

What do you do?

Naught.

What a shame.

 

Plain as day these lame talk more than they could ever physically exclaim.

Anyway, this criticism is just art, so don’t be pained.
