Art, not Love. Art.

you'll have to forgive me.
this is going to be an ugly one.

instead of talking the typical "bitter-single-person-on-valentine's-day" talk, i decided to talk about art.
then this day can somehow be redeemed as beautiful.
can it be though?

my question is: Why is Valentine's Day garb so tacky?
i could not fine one attractive piece of art to display here that fit my standard of aesthetics ...

are my standards too high?
or would you be satisfied with looking at something like this, especially something that is self-proclaimingly beautiful?

kill me.
the shape of the heart is awful. there's nothing more to say about it.
I'm sorry.
Do i sound bitter, or is my contempt justified?
