artwork: HA! 2016 oils 16″ x 20″ gallery wrapped canvas, original available for purchase.
Why? Am I Me?
I am origami, folded pretend
honest, temporary, simple
living artwork in the age of decline
encoded mortality with a mission
to awaken the lead into gold.
I have secrets no one wants to hear
what do you do with them?
pokey and ill shaped for travel
they don’t fit in my pockets anymore
falling out spilling beans and milk.
I have a mask I wear everyday
a skin suit designed to
glamour the eyes of onlookers
hiding tender bits and broken parts
preventing pity parties
rebellions and surrender.
I have a show I perform everyday
I am a flying trapeze artist performing
feats of painless accomplishment
meeting daily needs of entitled patrons
who complain about the service and tell
me to smile, it makes me pretty,
grimaces rewarded advice or displeasure.
I am this human that wakes, I stand here
full of impossible dreams, in front of
a mirror, raw radiance beaming bright
I feel each minute pass through me
knowing they are numbered
asking myself was it worth it?
what does it all mean?
what do I need to learn here?
HA! 2016 * written copy edited* spoken word to follow*
I am working hard. I. am. working. Hard.
