In earlier times, artists would purple at considerations about color-coordination
Purchasing decisions in keeping with the living room set,
Has been modernized.
Updated, a new wrinkle.
Money-launderers, young collectors, commodity traders and the like.
Blinded by the reflections off of a gilded future,
Vision clouded by global auction prices,
Investment grade objets d'art,
Artfully bought and sold
No need to take possession.
Storage-lockered until the market peaks or goes against them.
Nothing new, just additional confirmation.
Even the sordid decency of a dirty secret kept to one's self,
Like screwing dead animals or keeping slaves;
