deep within ourselves our cells

things that are deep we may know or feel  pieces of us pieces of importance
with a poem explaining  'streets wandering  streets reborn   sudden touch  knocks at their human door'

solidarity for the bulls

every year I cringe when this time comes along the bulls don't wanna run with you people
art and todd join in on protest... I do a painting on bulls in general at this time so this feel supported
while we are at it bullfighting should be put to bed.

flowers,cats and androgyny?

she asks the flowers
                                                     where they drank from?
    they respond with: from a magical life, of short duration
that's long enough to bloom

and to these cats that share different moons

primitive 2x


I worked on these 2 at the same time  I was'nt consciously thinking primitive but they sure felt that way when done, my clarinet was right there involved I would pick it up sporadically and get 30 seconds of melancholic sounds  so it feels like I live on a farm doing folks work I mean a form of folk

PATTI SMITH

I cant believe I just stumbled upon this  just after she tells us whos sexy the inspiration of  direct abandon and drive of whats felt and philosophized is beautiful

hashing out a way in punk rock on the bass that I bought through selling my bike
