artist statement

An excerpt from the short-story, DollarMonsterLand EscapePlan.

Near the press I met a dollarface, he wanted an exchange
He gave me legs from land 7 so I let him scan my brain
Great, these legs are getting stronger every time I train
But sometimes when I go to sleep my dreams get really strange

I keep seeing people who must be older than five
With dollarman in their hands, shuffling side to side
I keep seeing greenface, except he doesn’t move or kill
Just lays on the table with dollarmouth and dollarbill
