Galatea Won't Be Reformed





the muses refused the sculptor's call

moulding hands lost the touch

now they can only maim and destroy


give over to unseen forces

wait for them to deliver

in the erratic glow

of a shattered lantern

an air-borne debris waltz


in jagged shafts of light

Brownian particles

struggle to create

through interpretive dance

and staticky smoke signals


it was this way, or vice-versa

chattering indecision and bickering

they can’t seem to agree

but like Pygmalion

they miss the fair lady

you once were

in Never-Never Land

you have grown up

be it with organic earth

prayers or pixie dust

Galatea won’t be reformed

All "creatives" have those times. The ebb and flow, the tick and tock of the timely clock. It's noteworthy only to those that can relate. That's what we find hard at times. What is left to "relate" to? A never-ending fractal universe unfolds and all is changing yet ever the same and to see this is to comprehend a smidgen of the infinite. What remains after that except hammered repetition?

Thank you, Jennifer:)
The reason for MGTOW I guess. I don't mind feminists, but they seem to have lost that fair lady persona into a less attractive personality for me lately. Interesting concept, Pryde.

I hope I'm not wrong. Apologies to you if I am. :)
