"Distortion" by M.A.A. 
 On that day, projected on the windows
 as a ghastly apparatus, searching for these abandoned widows
 with a manifesto to share on the shape of glass; invitation to see 
 metaphysical physique, it was not by chance 
 we found our answers in His heart...
 gradual correction of edges
 surely you see how it is,
 there is a cult summoned to ruin the streets,
 and storm the house; there is a habit
 to leave alive Evola's children
 but it can be corrected with a little leaflet
 a disappointing disposition
 an uncontrolled distortion
 that the cosiness of revolution 
 is lost on them 
 stashed in the barrel of a revolver
             unkind lottery for the tamed
 and for them it’s over
                    but there is a way 
 to make them feel it all the same
 a wall of imagination
 feudal trappings engineered 
 into moral dimension 
 yet never verified -
             but there will be a sign, 
                    for which I would cut my hands 
             and what a sight:
 reciprocity sweeping these lands
 a method on the track of sanity
             is to get rid of apricity,
 and so, while asleep
 the spirits whisper things from the ceiling
 draw faces in the mirrors, violate all paintings
 but I feel ever calmer, 
 I find no slope too steep
 no bomb too large, no pain too sore
 no winter too cold, no ash too warm
 it's a beautiful life
 without sun after all
 when all the tints of black, gray and white
 are put against the background of crimson
 hands tied, face against the light
 there can be no more treason
             it covers every object;
 every emotionless face, a peasant or king
 it's a texture I force on every soulless thing
 - these are natural visions
             all formed within
 gradual correction of edges
 as long as they run
 there is nothing to see
 I open worlds with a master key
 and in the end,
 regardless what they believe
 they all come back to me
 ...It's been said that all politics begin with mysticism,
 now the youth needs to feel it in surfaces 
 a ritual to lend
 for godless lives 
 towards a sunless end

"An Artist on Texture" by Vian Borchert
 Few can take in texture
 like an artist does
 For Vincent Van Gogh
 For Monet
 and even for Picasso
 All had to feel the leaves they painted 
 They ran their fingers in the running stream
 They climbed trees while splinters of wood 
 entered their skin
 Textures of a glove
 Textures of silk
 Textures of your hair 
 on your neck
 on your skin
 The woolen cashmere sweater
 so warm, so soft
 Smooth texture
 Scratchy texture
 An artist not only sees and feels texture
 they bring it forth to their canvas
 You see...
 Texture for an artist is the most essential thing!

“For a Hated Cat, Still Causing my Trouble” by S.J. Saighead

It's in the air,
weeks after you've left. 
Still falling down my throat
and scraping my lungs. 

You're satisfied I'm sure,
having the final word in this
our long bitterly fought war. 

Still preventing sleep,
still taking my breath away,
carelessly and without a word or glance. 

I still despise you. 
I still resent you voice, calling
(any time day or night)
to be let outside, only to decide "no". 

Fucking cat.

My name is Seán and I am the creator and curator of the Artistic Differences Project. I started this project during the lockdown in Ireland due to COVID-19 in March 2020 as a way to get my friends and I creating during a troubling time. From there the project as gone from strength to strength and now we publish a new exhibition every two weeks.
