Artist's Description

HOMEPAGE FEATURED IMAGE

June 2010 Nominee Solo Exhibition

Safety First

It started with his father,
You can’t blame him really
Spitten image of his mother
Both just right for a temperament
He acquired
Laden with lazy love and crocodile tears

He only took the best from both
His father’s secret world
His mother’s bearable nature
Armed with a need for strict rules he
Found he could have just about everything

Except her.
She was wild and determined and loved him
For reasons he fancied where real.
But as push came to shove
And god knows how he ever allowed that to happen
He saw her melt into his background
And knew all would be as it ever was

Except
He still smelled her perfume left one day
On pink lace panties and band aides for
His wounds
His secret world was like a dying planet
He would have to find another place to exist
Maybe Florida would do
The moist heavy air would shut down
This feeling he had had of falling
Deep
That would never happen he knew
Like a knight riding for his Queen of spades

Safety was his code.
