How to Make Art

by Shloka Shankar

Construct a life made

from things glued to

a lollipop stick; a thing without

precedent, a mass of nothing

with a twist.

But that's not enough anymore.

No art is possible without being

alive, hurt, and undignified.

remixed from select lines from Slaughterhouse-Five

or The Children’s Crusade: A Duty-dance with Death,

by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
