Conversations never came easy to me. Though, on this rusty evening – soft and invariably sucked out of fuel – I heard those two, talk. The talk hanged around on various topics – from politics to writing to life and death.- WHO MALIGNED ART?
All these topics – that insinuates in me the writer – I once, so wanted to become. I have rarely told it to anyone, because people pity, and I loathe it. They would suggest – to be fearless and write and I hated this conversation from my gut-wrench. Maybe, at times I would heed much more attention to the ant that saw a sugar cube on the table – then went on and brought her colony to the table, than listen to the uninvited advice of Follow your passion.
But, these two people were so indulged in their conversatory-romanticism, that they had forgotten if the world exists. I was in the same zone. Forgotten the banal existence of wicked world. I wasn’t conversing – I was listening. I believe, True art lures audience, because it enjoys its own existence and merely concerns audience. Their stylistic approach to the conversation was like a Van Gogh’s Starry night – each word spoken and heard, shot and received, like the strokes of a brush, brushing over the canvas. Not, that the two persons – who were discussing things, very well read, but they had what most discourses lack, Passion.

My silence broke out in sound and the sound converted in syllables which led to word and then sentences – almost like breaking into the scene. It was like Kevin Spacey breaking the fourth wall but in opposite direction. This also had the same effect – reversed. Everything shattered. Van Gogh went back to asylum. The art – which could have been a masterpiece of conversation – ruptured(WHO MALIGNED ART) .
I wonder, how, when thoughts given sounds can disrupt something so beautiful. The way, after the discovery of language – we ended connections. The zenith, that language could have led to, was ended by another sound of same caliber, but disruptive.
Somehow, I managed to say sorry – then see their eyes blink in accordance and they resumed. I left that place, at once. Maybe, I was wrong. True art is something which don’t have an audience. Just the participators – however equipped.
