"How is it life if we aren’t suffering - earlobes stretched and dangling - I have shoveled her into my mouth - We could drink in the Ether together - drowning you in blue shards - strokes of harvest brown into the woe of blackened days - I shun the daylight - The brightness favors illusion - Sometimes it’s spit-out gum or twisted up toilet paper - Drowning in your deep graying heart - a pall of smog - A film of spider web - floating in space like one-eyed cigar-shaped UFOs - It’s true they have secrets they keep in impossible pockets - How many girls did he pretend to love - like children plucking the wings from flies - She squirms because the itch can dance - sailing through space - We must look so confused through the window"


"Paloma" by Jennifer E. Hudgens is now available for PRE-ORDER!

Happy December!

NEW in FLAPPERHOUSE online - Drenched Mold by Juliet Cook and Michael Bernstein

"I’m either screaming or I’m crying
or I’m hideously mean.
I’m a female-shaped gumball machine.
You know you can’t wait
to break me open
or throw me out the window.
I turn myself into
a ripped out placenta in the trunk
of the car. I can’t even drive."

My Newly Painted Tentacle Mug

Newly finished (glazed and fired) tentacle mug I recently painted.



From Black Friday through Cyber Monday, everything in my Blood Pudding Press shop is 20% off!



Octopus tentacle mug

A new Octopus tentacle mug I painted, in progress. Painted it last Sunday, dipped it in purple glaze Monday, now it needs to be fired into a kiln to turn the purple glaze into a white gloss on top of the true colors I painted it. Hopefully it will look strange and vibrant when it's done.
