CONSIDERING THAT THE CURRENT SITUATION IS DISHEARTENING OWING
TO THE REDUCTION OF THE WORK TO THE STATUS OF AN ADVERSTISING GIMMICK
THAT ARTISTS ARE COPYING THE WINDOW DRESSERS WHO USED TO COPY US
THAT PEOPLE ARE AFRAID OF SAYING ANYTHING SENSIBLE ABOUT ART
THAT JUDGMENT KOWTOWS TO SUCCESS
THAT VALUATION KOWTOWS TO AUCTIONS
THAT WE FLEE FROM THE WORK
BECAUSE WE ARE AFRAID OF BEING LEFT ALONE WITH IT
SEEING THAT A LACK OF MENTAL SUBSTANTIALITY IS ALLOWING
THE MATERIAL DIMENSION OF THE WORK TO TAKE OVER
SEEING THAT I’M NOT AT ALL TIRED OF REPEATING WHAT ILLUMINATING SUCH AN AGE
I WILL START AGAIN BY GIVING EACH WORK BACK THE SPACE IT ONCE HAD
I WILL START AGAIN BY TURNING EACH OBSERVER BACK INTO AN EXPONENT OF THE WORK ITSELF
I WILL START AGAIN!
