Cumulonimbus (18 of 30)

(dedicated to Prince Roger Nelson) I could give 23 reasons why I long for one-night stands and the purple sky exonerates as the world is malevolent, scattering a dandelion far-off from the ground in which it grew, latching onto soil and rooftops, hope and inspiration; … Continue reading

Loose Ends (12 of 30)

Winter sucks away this life from me. You draw me closer, just to try to fuck with me. Stop correcting my words, when you’re worse than me. Let me walk away because things are not what they seem. Let me pinch you to prove … Continue reading

Mixed Media (11 of 30)

(forgot to press the Publish button yesterday. So this one is a day late) I used acrylic paint, two small mirrors adhered to the 12×12 canvas and pubic hair embedded in cadmium yellow and raw umber and burn sienna. She … Continue reading

You Should Have Been a Serial Killer (10 of 30)

You should have been a serial killer with the ways you stalked me like herpes at prom, disappearing like Houdini, reappearing from nothingness. I was never impressed. I needed you to go. Get gone. You should have been a doctor with your callous … Continue reading
