here are the works i put up at my mini show Love is a Dog from Hell at 15minutes cafe in lasalle college of the arts.
don't undress my love/you might find a mannequin:/don't undress the mannequin/you might find/my love. -Trapped
or the terror of one person/aching in one place/alone/untouched/unspoken to/watering a plant.
I loved you/like a man loves a woman he never touches, only/writes to, keeps little photographs of. I would have/loved you more if I had sat in a small room rolling a/cigarette and listened to you piss in the bathroom,/but that didn’ happen.
-An Almost Made Up Poem
meanwhile I look at young girls/stems/flowers of chance.
she has saved me /from everything that is /not here.
-The 6 Foot Goddess
there is a loneliness in this world so great/that you can see it in the slow movement of/the hands of a clock

(also, i’ve been using the “it’s ART!” statement to defend the pathetic patches of black polish leftover on my nails… it renders most complainers dumbfounded cos they believe me…teehee!)
