These poems express humor, frustration, anger, and curiosity about working in the arts. John Kulm explores the topics of "What is art?" and "Why can't I make enough money at it?" He does it with references to such luminaries as Soren Kierkegaard, Robert Motherwell, and Pink.

When Kulm was touring as a comic and performance poet in the 1990s he didn't share these poems and prose pieces with audiences on the road. He wrote them to work out his thoughts and feelings about the arts, and he saved them for audiences in Astoria, Oregon, near his home. He explained, "Astoria audiences knew me and they understood my rants because it's an arts kind of town."
