To say that ‘we’ are a ‘they’,
is to isolate removed responsibility,
to keep artist an inhuman name,
in favor of fleshy painted form;
of grotesquely segmented hide
delicately burned landscapes
etched into backs no older than two.
He is medical study, textured composition beautiful
before he is to you, a boy.
Branded with “these books exist” so
why should we not screen for reaction?
There is a market for meat.
