Journal History


There’s something intrinsically vague
about cities;
the boxes of concrete;
the tubes of the underground;
the lonely lamps of the streets;
the dancings,
the standings,
the sittings;
all confined inside the virtual walls
of conformity.

There’s something intrinsically strange
about city lights;
the red for resting;
the yellow for yawning;
the green for going in circles;
the blues
of the motion
and the demotion;
collected in a black hole
of dreams.

There’s something intrinsically sad
about city dwellers;
their hectic lives;
their aimless hopes;
their overcrowded emptiness;
the motivation,
and the demotivation;
they are oxymorons,
concentrated inside a camp
of competition.

There’s something intrinsically bleak
about city teachings;
the signs
saying, “No nature allowed,”
the billboards
saying, “I want your money,”
the watchful eyes
of big brothers and sisters,
under the guise
of one family.

There’s something intrinsically bogus
about city logic;
the construction
for the sake of destruction;
the receipts
of formal deception;
the addiction to growth
with no more resources,
like a suicidal bubble
of modernity.

There’s something intrinsically beautiful
about cities;
the works of art;
the prizes
inside those boxes of concrete,
the dancings,
the standings,
the sittings;
all forming the joyful monuments
of illusion.
Overabstraction by overmood
I have to admit, I am not a big fan of abstract art, as I prefer art that tells a story, or conveys a message. Yet, I don’t agree with those who dismiss modern abstract art as nonsense. Perhaps, Kazimir Malevich’s The Black Square is the most controversial work of modern abstract art. It has undergone numerous attempts of interpretation by those who try to see beyond the black square, but none of these came out as convincing enough for the artistic laymen. What does matter, however, is the artist’s intention in coming up with his artwork. Meaningful or meaningless, it is a relative thing, because, after all, art is a matter of intention by the artist regardless of the audience’s perception.
