Happy peaceful people.

coming home to the man-made unmade bed,
where unbeknownst to no one else,
The sound of the sheets crumple,
Like a fabric less supple than flesh.

Infant Innocence, 16" x 20", Watercolor, Tempera, and Monoprint on Arches

The Grizzly Bear is huge and wild;
He has devoured the infant child.
The infant child is not aware
It has been eaten by the bear.
- Infant Innocence, A.E. Housman

Wow it's been a long time since I've posted a damned thing.

taking a long walk:

miss marbles and sabertooth:

some recent art in my studio:

a poem:
The words I worded to you,
Two days ago,
According my ebb's flow,
Forsook all pleasantries,
To deal one mighty blow.

For years it took to come to this,
Since two moments after we had kissed,
Turned into damnable bliss,
And it can be no more.

When love is made it is two strong,
Two weak, two proud, and suddenly too far gone,
To be able to be pulled along,
When one of the partners is unwilling.

When I told you that we were done,
And the last syllable came off my tongue,
I knew that I had not won,
But a fool knows not his fate 'til the end.

And now I wait until it's not us.

I stand on the corner of my block,
Watching every bus pass by,
My eyes and passengers depart at the stop.

To work, to play, to live,
They step down and let go of what they must,
Be it a handrail on the vehicle,
Or a scheduled unveiling,
Like me, like us.

country mouse \ city mouse

A bull mastiff named Molly
The Barn!
Sights in the city
Last minute acoustic show in West Philly
Back in the dirty south
Everyone's face looked gross
