Speechless Yearning By Helenka Wierzbicki
Speechless Yearning By Helenka Wierzbicki

The incapacity of language

There are no words,
So I talk around it.
Never getting to the point,
Always wondering what to say,
Anxious in various ways.

But I’m here, for now.
Alive and kicking.
Lashing out, ripe for the picking.
Picked already.
Self-selected, no words, forced to understand.

The difference between real art and commercial art

Art does it best
I mean genuine art, not commercial crap;
Stuff designed to create affect, not drawn from the heart
Not from dark corners of introspect
