The Price of Beauty

“The price of beauty is potential disaster..”  Donald Kuspit


there is something strange about beauty

something so transcendental

it creates a breach in normal perception

an opening into a beguiling unknown

that rises up out of the mundane

so quickly

it can be dizzying

even frightening

sometimes terrifying

beauty has an urgent vulnerability

an uncanny poignancy

and no secure identity

it is inherently fragile

constantly questioning itself

and the price of its spontaneity

is the impending peril

of constant change
