En Vogue

The dissident artist is a plaything of the bourgeois aesthete.

Tame the angry young man by giving him a platform.

A column, book deal, gallery space.

The avant-garde demands attention. That’s its downfall.

Easily appropriated for the price of an audience.

Outers name-drop the fashionable writer’s latest.

He’s approved to boast the narcissist’s self-esteem.

Pity the poor poet for being so earnest. []
