SURREALISTIC ARTISTRY

Folder: 
MEANDERTHAL MAN

 

Cable is the greatest thing

I get to watch wrestling

all the time now

 

Wrestling is

almost an art form

if you consider

surrealism and dada

 

they said the ultimate

act of surrealism

would be to randomly

open fire in a crowd.

 

the choreographed violence

of wrestling

is like

a ballet of the absurd

 

love & hate & jealousy

& the desire to excel

meet in the madness

of the squared circle

 

the careful tones

of the orchestra

set a hush over the crowd

 

It is a primal feud

of medieval proportions

the giant warriors meet

in the middle of the ring;

a frenzied crowd screams

for a bloodbath

of Roman proportion

 

The savage fury

of Picasso’s cubism

is boldly reflected

in the battle of the ring

 

as chairs are swung

and a pencil becomes

a bloodletting weapon

instead of a tool

for artist and poet

 

the ultimate battlefield

for the surrealistic eye

It always adds up

2+2+5

which is all it is

 

and all we could

really hope

for it to be

I don't trust anyone that says wrestling is fake.

Wrestling.

Wrestling is a religious experience for many people.  The arena is the cathederal. The ring is the altar.  --  Stephen

You're from Texas so you had

You're from Texas so you had the mostly now deceased Von Erich family.  I have a hard time with the WWE these days but it used to be close to religion for me as a young man.  thanks for reading and commenting.
