bug-eyed (graphite, india ink and watercolor on illustration board)

the reason for gravestones

after a hard long day
death is there waiting

but it's not until you see death
in the driveway that it really hits you

then you just want to be remembered
you want to leave something behind

that will show the people you love
there was someone with your name

that mattered somehow

weather sensor 3012 (graphite and watercolor on illustration board)

no one can stay long

in the black car
filled with black spots

the black bark of the moon
stuck in the sky's black back

the black skin of the night
covered in black blood

your black tongue
soaking in my black face

while the black building

and they went to be (mixed media with india ink on illustration board)

eating the monkey's hands

you are
the president of space
hanging on a star
black like me

you move like a sonic ranger
with your mannequin presence
it isn't hard to imagine
the outcome of most situations

we are barely in heaven
but i know what you want
i know what you want
take the ashes off

the polaroid flashes
against your bionic cheeks
your smile on the paper
and the earth underneath
