A trend in art

A trend in art/

all these guys
that're taking over
With an emphasis on
innovative techniques,

The defining characteristic,
and its ambiguous legacy,
was self-consciousness

ambitious work swiftly going out of style emerged,

spare lines and an edgy delivery

anything at all as a means
to a more deliberately clever approach

we crave innovations
battling the known has made a lasting contribution
to the fringe

. . . . . . . .

The OED word of the day for the erasure poem|commentary is 'New Wave.'
