Creative Writing

Segments

The mirror refracts
The eyes’ limitations exposed,
You can’t take in the whole image:
Forced to focus on elements,
Gaze distorted,
Everything abstracted.
Trying to piece the fragments together is futile.
He sees the whole,
it is difficult to comprehend how the segments can be beautiful.
Revel in the alteration
Reframe as a Picasso, call yourself Cubist
There is beauty in the difference between the parts and the sum:
In the fractured.

    Is this author 14 years old with absolutely zero knowledge on music? Has to be. Two out of three songs are irrelevant. Both by shitty bands. Who paid for this?…

    Wonderful article! Very insightful and brilliantly communicated. I wasn't aware of this issue before, but this article has really brought it to light for me. Thank you very much!
