Used Art

Used Art

Skin like stretched canvas

Torn and tattered and dull

Colored in fingertips and old bruises

Paintings are no longer practical

Art collectors want to touch

To feel, to experience, and to damage

Then sell to the highest bidder

Hide her away, turn a blind eye

Don’t look, don’t touch

This piece has turned to dust

Is this a metaphor for 'old age'? As of a 'once beautiful' woman? Or do I need to be more literal?

Too true! Art now is a cattle market for people who know the price of everything and the value of..not much.
