Artist Statement

With bunny hugs and bunny hops,

Kiss the canvas

Spiked by a one-two punch!

Mine the myths that lace the cultural gumbo

Of these Multi-States of Mind!

 

The perpetually deferred promise of consumer bliss haunts our dreams

To be loved and lovable.

Ball humping and bible thumping,

Transfixed before the one-eyed monster,

We shoot ourselves to entertain our media messengers

Serviced by remote corporate control.

 

Searching for our real selves

By searching the shelves

Lined with supersized and spring scents,

Low-fat slingbacks that come in your choice

Of midnight berry and super-moist cherry.

 

Deploying surface to air lip gloss,

Nursing the loss of assorted body parts

As frosted Pop Tarts rain from the sky.

Looking underneath yellow fevered dreams

To pick at “Made in China” labels

That won’t rub off.
