Starving Artist Works the Hardest

I remember some unemployed, but privileged, slam poet reciting that line during an open mic. Yes, “starving artist works the hardest”…because nothing is quite as easy as coming home from a long, high-stress day at work, feeding the pets, making dinner, tidying up, exercising and then wrenching yourself off the couch and away from whatever crap t.v. show your overworked brain is thankful to be watching so you can spend the last hour you have to yourself pouring all of your mental and emotional focus into your art.
