Art is a Vampire

I create many pieces of Art
that by sheer enormity
become a Dragon leashed to me
to which my Identity is Confused.
My self worth can seem equivalent to it’s quality.
If It is bad, I am bad,
If It is good, then I am good.
I Hoard It, I Protect It.
I am Lord Creator, Protector, and Guardian of this Beast.
Is an Artist a Myth?
Is an Artist the Original False Prophet?

c :  the set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution or organization a corporate culture focused on the bottom line
d :  the set of values, conventions, or social practices associated with a particular field, activity, or societal characteristic

Definition then VOID,
Art is a Vampire
Who cannot find Youth- their blood tastes fresher, better-
Placed in a Museum, like a funeral pyre
to be
a Relic at Rest.
