My meter is broken {couplets are broken} I Failed the Poem

My skin pressed up against your flesh
as if we are of the same mind and desire
Keep the doubts and fears to the left of right
I just can’t be here with you tonight

There are better things than this
my life lit up with a reset
and its like a reject button
like a factory line production

I’d like [...]

Failed Poems {failure is a success}

Odd, failing is, failing was, failing will be.

I’ve had my moments of completion… Last weekend I was so close to smashing the assembled boxes and plexi boxes. Not that I am displeased with my results–granted I am not happy with the results, they could be better–but I sense the fact that the pieces [...]

Failed Poems Project {waiting}

Until the plexiglas comes in… I feel like I am at a standstill.  Which really isn’t all that true.  I guess I don’t feel that the Boxes are all that successful, which is too bad since they were the original focus of this whole project.  Now they have taken a back seat to the plexi [...]

Day 5: Failed Poems Project {contemplation}

I’ve talked with another artist friend about this project and he suggested that I look at Art Brut.  Although I have had training, I still feel lost in a world that seems to have no place for me.  So the question remains, why do I even bother?  Because at a certain point it comes down [...]

Day 5: Failed Poems Project

Don’t have much time.  But this is what I got done….

This is a little Pinktober idea… “Breast Cancer Gas mask…. 1/2 of 1% of the sale of this item will go to some charity that helps breast cancer…. with a maximum of $50.00…. buy it today and feel like you are doing something!
The photo [...]

Day 4: Failed Poems Project

Here’s a pic of the inside of box 1.  I am not sure if I am happy with it but I am sick of this box and I have moved on to the next box.  Maybe I will come back and rework this box later.  For some reason, titles seem pretty worthless right now.

Above are [...]

Failed poems, boxed in.

I could have you, but never keep you.
I could trust you , but never believe you.
I could marry you, but never be you.
I could try you, but never convict you
I could say it was okay, but but never believe it
I could run away, but never get away
I could say it doesn’t exist, but there you [...]

Failed Poems Stuff

Just thought I would add this to stuff I will use with the Failed Poems project:
But funny enough on its side it looks like a robot ready to hug you…. OR DESTROY YOU!!!!

I find it interesting that the symmetry of the Carboplatin model makes it look so easy.  When we go back to the [...]

Day 3: Failed Poems Project

Well I was able to assemble one box [sorta] and see what the images and poems inside look like.  I still am rethinking the “front door” hinge.  I can’t tell how good everything will look once it is complete.  Although I am sure that I will be very sick of pink once this is over.  [...]

Progress: Failed Poems Project, Day 2

In addition  to the Failed Poems Boxes, there is also a Failed Poems [Framed].  These are images on plexi that will overlap one another in order to create depth.  The image First Layer: Simple Bilateral Mastectomy [unfinished] is a dividing cancer cell which will be framed an inch in front of the Second Layer: [...]
