I Saw Bigfoot

Art, superstition, millennial girl.

Art School Graduate

Art College

I majored in sharing every piece of my soul,

And baring my heart to a self absorbed audience.

They smiled and said wow,

That’s great,

Is it my turn yet?

 

I watched kids stuff shit into glass vials

And get critical praise for their integrity

And their nerve

While I tore my heart out

And glazed it with my tears.

 

They monetized on their waste,

While I hoarded my vulnerability.

And now I have a closet

Filled with women

That I recognise as myself,

Beautiful and frightening,

But more importantly

No commercial appeal.

 

When I watch the news

I see vials of shit

In the background of television sets,

In the queens garden,

On the presidents desk in the oval office

As he addresses america,

 

Wow they really made it,

Everyone says,

The alumni society is writing about them

As notable graduates,

Buy their shit,

And the hoards of freshman

Smell like sulfur as I pass them by,

With notable shit hanging around their necks.

 

This is America.

This is why I don’t make art any more.

But you can buy my shit.

Clay Body

If my skin were clay and my

Body shaped through my experiences

I’d be dried out and cracking in the sun

And the more I try to shape myself

The more I disintegrate.

Touch me, I’m gritty, I’m hard

But push me and I’ll crumble.

Dusty residue floats in the air on contact

I’m ready for the kiln

So that I’ll never be soft again.

Who am I kidding,

I haven’t been soft in forever.

honestly i applaud all girls who tell gross strange men to f*ck off but dnt feel ashamed if u can’t bring yourself to bc basically you’re taking the chance of “this guy might stab me for this” which is fairly plausible given history + Power dynamics so, like, dnt turn ur nose ^^^ at ppl who have a harder time with that

I just wanted to show you guys how CC likes to lay recently, like she has no front limbs. What a goof.

Oh god, I just looked at my guestbook from my senior show and I’m feeling really bad for not keeping up. I didn’t believe that anyone would like my work, I didn’t believe anyone liked it when I read my guestbook after the show, i never believed anyone who said anything positive to me, but now I’m just consumed with the lovely words from so long ago that I’m overwhelmed with feelings. I just now got it, and I suddenly feel so much regret.

A very nice reading for myself.  Spot on and optimistic. #tarot
