Art Lover

by David Andrés Alíx

I beg accommodation to my longing

No evil shall I commit

I will remain a pauper, art lover

Celebrated only in the distant future

Remaining on the distal side of the red velvet rope

Supported by shiny brass stations

Visiting often

A pilgrimage embarked upon at an instant

Its destination the wing dedicated to you

Unprofaned kinship

Standing forever, so long as I remain

Pauper forgotten

Unable to secure an acquisition

Be it honorable or ill-gotten
