Some notes on my new show, MAPPLETHORPE May 2-4th at BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange. I’m really excited about this project, and I really want people to come see it! If money is the reason you’re not coming, hit me up. If you want to write about the show for a blog/newspaper/outlet, let me know as well and I’ll be happy to arrange comps.
This is the freakiest and most experimental thing I’ve ever made, and I’m excited and scared to show it to y’all.
If you love your friends, drag them. Call them on their shit so they can get it together. Come for their edges and then apply jamaican black castor oil to the bald spots. Read them like a Dr. Seus book. Because you care about them and caring about people means telling them they’re full of bullshit every now and then.
Admit it- innocent little girls turn you on don’t they? you like to make them cry you like to tell them why you like to grow them up swallow hard + throw them up i would die to hate you see my heart in my hand do you really understand get my heart of your hand get yer hand off my heart i would die to hate you but its a LOVE thing you say you got this LOVE thing you think its just a LOVE thing Fuck yer fuckin LOVE thing by the way, yer bright eyes are not so encouraging you want my youth so bad you love to see me sad all the sunlight that you say can never make it go away i would DIE to not care anymore.
It’ll be available for download in yr friendly neighborhood app store: 24 poems, audio of me reading each one, with art by Cat Glennon—developed by VERBALVISUAL. (just in time for national poetry month)
