opaque sentiments

a dirge from beneath the dirt

hand printif it’s a winged effigy you want
a dirge from beneath the dirt
of someone
who tried to be someone
she died attempting to leap
through Saturn’s hoops
but the man in the moon
was not the gentleman he was purported to be
that guy plays a tripping low lit thief
stealing each day a bit more
whenever the sun grows tired
honor-bound roses
placed with tearful lips

(you know how she feels about flowers)
odiferous funeral parlors
thorny squatters on her cold headstone
with the audacity to die on the already dead
blood crimson of their selected petals
slapping her corpse with hues no longer pumping
she is most certainly a shade of soft blue by now
like the daytime sky
even at night

if she had lived her life
as a someone
her body would have been preserved
and all this could have been avoided
print back
bye, bye blackbird


Flollowers and Rocky Sequels

Dear Friends,
I give these flollowers as a thank you for stopping by my humble blogcabin. After ten months and three versions of anntogether, I think I finally got the hang of basic blogging. And you know what, it’s only scary in the dark.
Flollowers I thank you for returning – through the prequel, the original and the sequel (which I hope runs a very long time). It’s been like the Rocky franchise minus three movies. 🙂

Rocky Poster
This is my favorite poster of all time. Rocky stuck by me in my youth on my purple bedroom wall. I still remember clear as day, waiting anxiously in the movie house, the lights dimming, the grand white ROCKY letters sliding across the screen as Rocky’s theme music amped up…

Thank you, my friends. May you dream of sleeping in a garden of beautiful sunflollowers and your personal Rocky. YO ADRIAN!

Flollowers Beastie pencilled together several weeks ago, but was lost for a while.
Movies in My Eyes Guy created months ago. Both dudes are rendered with Prisma pencils.


Elevated Noses

Dear Friends,
Rocky and Mojo’s noses are works of art, like the flora their long snouts enjoy sniffing.

rockymojoI like pretending my dogs are elevated thinkers who appreciate nature’s colorful tapestry. So when the boys relieve themselves on defenseless flowers they’re simply saying, “Oh, the perennials are exquisite. We’re only peeing on your flowers to keep the plant vermin away.”

Thank you. May your bedroom be awash in floral scents to dream away on…
