And suddenly the hinges started to unhitch

yesterday was the windstorm of the year for the Cosmic Horses

24-hours + without power/
trees that have been defying gravity for two hundred years fall like feathers to the ground, yelling TIMBER in three minute intervals/
trapped in the attic of Rodman Hall/
braving the gusts on bridges and country roads/

...with all of this going on around us, we happily got some well-needed reading in [Naked Lunch and If on a winter's night a traveller] but now that the power is back and running again, here are some things that have taken interest...

in Two days, 
the exhibition nine lives will be taken down, which means the CH attic installation will be packed up to be sent to Buffalo in only a few days! 
how Bittersweet. 

The wind began to switch The house, to pitch And suddenly the hinges started to unhitch Just then the Witch To satisfy an itch Went flying on her broomstick, thumbing for a hitch!

Courage in the tree tops

Almost one year ago. So excited for this summer.

The Boy's Blade

It all began here...


boom goes the bat that flies into the fan made of sheets and tears

that feeds on turbulent emotions in stillness of air

I'm going now to my closet to pick something to wear.

Reflective agony! A wanderer emanates velvet bananas.

Recording - please do not disturb

CH's + Brian recording the first cassettes of audio magic for the upcoming video

sanity is a cozy lie when it comes to Gordon Lightfoot, I can never get enough if you eat it you will die so I suggest an apple pie standing on the edge of record, playback cough, waltzing in seltzer cries out without spite We ended the lustfest thus ending a dream The penultimate fate of ungrammatical crudities The softener glistening like fresh milked cream - CH's
