Sadness and the Sale of Art

Azure bid on this, what makes me said, this is offered
for $19.99, it's from the late 70s, was an important
work for me, in my thinking - I don't remember who I
gave it to - it's close to being discarded - if you're
interested, bid on it, I'm sinking in the gloom / fear
that my work will be utterly forgotten, the digital
disappearing, the physical decayed, the archives
finally thrown out -
