Merrily Merrily & EZ's painting

Moving in a particular way so as to convey a thing or idea.

Watching someone watch you while their eyes start to dilate.

When someone never gets to see you do the good things with your life.

When your pants are dirty and you look caved-in, you rule.

You have the noisiest pants in the palace.

Realizing the only way to get through something is to walk around it.

Sometimes the game is called bombardment.

The Game Called Bombardment

This most distinctive
mark of quality

and in the case of positives
and privates

all spoke together earnestly
in Gaelic

the sound of which
was all one thing

and great in comparison
with another

so that none shall say that no substance was the same

or relative in character.
Thus, one mountain is called great

in comparison with
teeth or sight or hardness

hardness being predicated
on the evil which is good

and equally the contrary
of the fine.

I had no idea I appeared
like a beggar on horseback.

Prodigious tall horses
Spat upon me.

No gallery representation right now. My site has become a sort of gallery for her of late (I'm, afterall, her biggest fan!)

Lately she's been doing loads of illustrations for various poet's books, along with a whole book about pies and pie making for a cookbook titled Bubby's Pie Compendium (the restaraunt Bubby's in Soho and Dumbo) written by the poet Jen Bervin. It's due out later this year from a major publisher. She's also illustrating a children's book titled The Little General and the Giant Snowflake written by the poet Matthea Harvey (and soon to be published by Soft Skull Press).

Gallery ideas? Pass 'em along.

Gallery idea! There is an empty warehouse in Des Moines on the east side(several in fact) very cheap.
live in dad's basement(rent free) and share drive in theaters in hot august Iowa evenings slurping & spilling exotic pop until your chin sticks to your upper neck and dust from nearby cornfield settles in creases in neck. Share insight into art and lifes layered meanings at 4 H club meeting while drinking piss warm beer.
Get back to family values. Now!
