Patience Is A Kind Of Sadness; watercolors by 

Watercolors on cheap watercolor paper that annoyed me.
90×45 cm
2n a half by one n a bit feet. Or something.
This girl.. ah well.

SO many stories, I think that I shall keep this one to myself.

Just discovered this recording of one of the oldest songs I have written. Decades and decades ago…




Stains in my bathroom
Nightmares and guns.
Razors in my bedroom.
Grateful for the fun.

Starve me into silence.
Grinding in my head.
Beautiful gorgeous violence
Slips in the blood I shed.

Take my hand and crush it
This room is filled with steam.
Take my face and hold it
Black and white like dreams.
There’s a bare bulb in the hallway
Holding you in here.
You are broken bright ugly and grey
Frightening me with fear.

Blood dance in an empty room.
Some music and a pin.
Sleeping with me till noon
A little sin a little sin


Of course! The scenes are played.
Sleeping heat under my touch.
Again, again you say.

Hey, it’s not enough.
You crawl inside my need.
Your nails in my hands.
Coffee cigarettes, bourbon and speed.
Maybe understand

You know how the walls turn red.
Smashing our teeth together.
Grabbed by the inside of my head.
Don’t cry, never.

I have been writing my novel, which is so exciting i made my cat throw up last chapter I finished. Um… I spun her around saying “YAY!” too much. so i haven’t been painting anywhere near as much as i like to. (I’ve also been realllllllly sick. oh well.) Apart from painting I have a side-line in cat straightening – an uncommon skill that i learned in a dzong in Bhutan.
