HOTP-Martin Buber (paper, glue, string, inkjet ink, sharpee on canvas)

everything’s oklahoma

i laid my head
on the yellow pillow
at the party

with the good weed
and the butthole surfers
manager dude

who had just made the 
freshest blotter and
i took that and

moved into the future
with this new knowledge
that there was more

than one way to experience
everything and nothing 
was really the way 

we think it is

Super Lone Ranger (wood, glass, acrylic paint, paper, inkjet ink,polyester resin and glitter)

Star smoke

You'll bow down before
God shivering and afraid
And full of shame
And darkness filling
Your heart handcuffed 
To a clown midget
And it will be easy

Ten hours will come and
Go and you'll be unaware
Of it's passing
A thin towel wrapped
Around your legs
Birds living in your beard
Remembering all the
Words of every song
You've ever heard
And it will be easy

You'll smile
And it will be the only
Time you've ever smiled
And your face will
Fall to the floor
With a clang
Waking the stranger
Sleeping beside you
In the car

You'll have a meeting
In a coffee shop in Seattle
Concerning a musical event
That will never take place
The woman you're talking to
Occasionally writing
Down notes with an
Orange crayola marker
All hope lost

You'll grow much older
And die one afternoon
In a hospital bed
In Houston
And your son
With his heart breaking
Will allow the nurse
To discontinue
The life support

And the world
Will spin through
Space forever
With the rest of the universe
And clouds made of
Billions of galaxies
Will gather together
On the edge of infinity

And it will be easy
