A Portrait of the Monster as an Artist


Dominik Parisien


For Helen Marshall


It knows poetry is subjective, that one creature’s poem is the art that beats at the heart of another. At times it fancies itself a fanged Eliot, ripping subject from context to gestate new meaning. It remembers hungering for a greater capacity for abstraction gorging itself on organs of expression, how as it ate it dreamt of expanding to encompass thoughts on all things that never were. (It hears it mastered only the delicate methods of outrageous violence). It believes an aesthetic appreciation of the monstrous is not for their like; that the day they explore the canvas of its body will reveal nothing they would call wondrous.
