In this day and age a sense of poetry is lacking. The world is anathematised. The pleasure principle has dulled peoples souls. They don’t feel, they are not moved by any aesthetic feeling . There is no passion. The one area of most peoples lives, sex, lacks intensity lacks fire in other words lacks poetry. Life is a mechanical routine of ritualized habits and endless going over of old patterns- no spark no intensity. These Mildewed flowers are meant to evoke feeling. If the feeling is that of revulsion or that of elation, of abhorrence or that of glee then these Mildewed flowers have achieved their result they have made you alive feel in other words they have made you human again.
