Don’t Be

Don’t Be

bukowski
famously wrote
"don't try"

i wonder
if before
"don't try"
should come
"don't be"
cause anything
we create
when we're trying 
to be
is merely
gross propaganda
for that thing

orwell
famously
wrote
"all art is propaganda"

maybe
all art
is propaganda
but the only
true art
is propaganda
for what's 
real
instead of the way
its creator
needs things
to be
