Tarte tatin is Art

You, my dear, are an aesthete 

You get that heat emanates from the heart, especially when it has skipped seven, missed beats.

The beasts of practicality try to cast a terrible tone on your latest work in aesthetics.

A sensitive ear is highly tuned to tease out the very best in their unintelligible phonetics.

Jump leads,

Scart leads.

Turn the television off, inspire an imaginative outburst to make a proud Keats. 

Onion peels,


Feet in the air , lessens the chance of crying a river -full , making a pitiful dent in a poverty starved body -craving for even half of a star-struck critics cuisine meals. 

Hand made beads,

Money needs,

Beauty besmirched by a simple swipe – unlucky, are those who hold their cards to the heart -almost touchingly near.

Bluff or blush – which makes me want to call you out as my Dear?


Life’ s arched enemy.

Not in a way that a mountain raises it’s brow the skies,

This is military warfare, bows and arrows-  sharp, jutted out pairs, cutting out a perfect line of lies.


Cursive defection

The common tart can see beauty, lying down, eyes facing upwards, making imagery out of clouds.

Everything is ineligible until someone takes the time to see , understand -shed the cloak that brings fog so thick -it shrouds. 

Arms crossed,

Minds lost.

Never apologise for seeing the beauty in all that touches your senses.

Who else is going to find a world where we can teach people that Art is not about putting up strict defences?

Citations for aesthete

A fanatical aesthete to the end, Kessler never diverged from the young Nietzsche’s belief that art justifies life.Alex Ross, “Diary of an Aesthete,” The New Yorker, April 23, 2012

… the next week they were bustling out of an upper Macquarie Street parlour with pad & paints, trying to look oh-so-very-much the Professional Aesthete, but–in rotten old twill trousers & course old canary coats, with mangy hair rough-hacked & poxed skin stubbly–inevitably failing.Richard Flanagan, Gould’s Book of Fish, 2001

  4. This is fantastic. It’s like a painting that you need to sit in front of for hours because you’ll always miss something about it. Aesthete is a wonderful word. I especially like your last two lines.
