Most of the world has never seen a play;
that’s okay
Your novel will be read by a small handful of people
Write it anyway
You should dance like nobody’s watching
Cause nobody’s coming to your recital
Nobody cares about your stupid fucking art
Your stupid fucking art is vital

Your beautiful poem might not save any lives
If it saves your own life that’s enough
I’m not even sure if I think art can save lives
But dammit I’m addicted to the stuff
You may never really make a living
But Dostoyevsky barely made a living
The point of making art isn’t making it at art
The point of making art is living
