Give Me Porn Not Poetry – No Surprise –

Since 2004 there had been a steady increase in search traffic for “Porn” and a corresponding decline in search query’s for “Poetry.” What does it mean… Oh come on you know what it means, it means less people give a crap about Poetry or Flash Fiction.

Of course it could mean people are more sophisticated and know where the poetry is, so they don’t resort to such broad one word searches as “Poetry.’ It can also mean people are so flushed with heat that searching for a boring term like porn meets their carnal needs nicely.

Somehow artists and writers need to do a better job of extolling the inherent heat within Poetry, the life giving and expanding power within a Flash Fiction piece and the melting of your inhibitions brought on by an art showing on a Wednesday evening. sound the trumpet, spit-out the alternatives that life and art offer.

Porn may sometimes be art and Poetry may sometimes be porn but surely a decline in the reading of Poetry, Flash Fiction and the viewing or Art is always porn in its nastiest sense.
