In the Dark

in the dark

in my bed

by the wall

his tongue

my ear

his tongue

my mouth

his head

my thighs

wet silence

red blood

he enters

he fills me

my mouth

his breath

my face

his knife

I wait

in the dark

in my bed

By the wall

Under the Sea: A Virtual Art Show and Blog Party

In June, Teagan Geneviene invited me to do a virtual art show on her blog.

This was after I told her I’d met an art dealer who advised me to organize
an online portfolio.

I’m clueless about such things.

Teagan and I figured a virtual art show would give me a way to practice building a portfolio.

When she mentioned having the art show on an imaginary submarine I staged a shot in VR to use as an invite and wound up making a storyboard of Cornelis Drebbel’s undersea search for the lost paintings of Rob Goldstein.

I turned the storyboard into a video based on silent era news shorts.

The Drebbel video is a bit OTT, you’ll see what I mean when you watch it.

I’m honored Teagan chose to highlight my work on Teagn’s Books and
delighted that she let me play with Cornelis Drebbel.

Well done, Cornelis Drebbel!

I hope I did him justice.

The party at Teagan’s Books and it runs all weekend.

I hope I see you there!

Bring a link to the party and feel free to leave one here.

to her face they smiled and said ‘nice things’

which she knew were lies

behind her back they laughed

and made dirty-lezzie jokes

because it made them uncomfortable

to think about what they thought she did

it made them feel a bit disgusted

like when you stand too close

she looked like them in superficial ways

wore at times, nicer dresses and had longer hair

the fact that she liked girls wasn’t in their

comfort zone

when it was summer time they had

BBQ’s and invited all the neighborhood kids

wondering if she would be safe around minors or

would do something inappropriate

when they started a mommy running club

she wasn’t invited because she was neither

a mommy or someone they wanted to

bare their secrets with

what would she understand of husbands?

maybe their husbands liked her
