Exhibition of a Taxidermist


Sit in an exhibition...

... to mimic human activities,

gather dust in a basement,

stuffed by a taxidermist.

Ain't got no tail...

... no tail at all

ain't got no limousine

ain't got no pretty house.

Just a deep dark hole.

The doll...

... could have been sleeping

in the vaults,

grey from grime of centuries,

dusty and dull.

I was found...

a bona fide

14th-century relic.

Channeling More

He saw things he had never seen before.

He had cracked a door.
He had cracked a door.

In the slippery realms of waking dreams faeries

desperately want to normalize

into a legitimate object of study.

The Troll Doll

in my hospital room is an alternate reality

or "dreamtime" as they call it

down under

Mona Lisa Unveiled

her dress more ochre than brown

the sky a subtle blue

layers of varnish and grime

are gone and truer colours unveiled

An apple a day keeps the doctor away

I dream about it every night

There's something up there...

beautiful and old

waiting for us

enveloped by fog and

as the light shimmers

That evening about dusk...

He looks ghostlike.

He tells me

There is something there,

brownish, sunken

down into a crevasse

But the body had to be...

... mysteriously

from a small cemetery

transported in a silver coffin

to the dining room table

where he built a shrine

for daily devotion

In a lifelike pose...

... the remaining remnants leave the cemetery
... the remaining remnants leave the cemetery

I started close...

... very close

and very deep

and unfortunately

became afraid

and had to stop

But if we could

we would

This shadown light and hazy...

... simply shouldn't happen.
... simply shouldn't happen.

Stones bearing strange images

Experimental designs

discarded by God.

He stumbled on a stone

with his own name on it!

    There are some great interpretations on YouTube or MySpace of Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven. But above all, I go for... "The Raven and Other Songs" by the Raven, some songs chosen from Poe's poems and composed in a manner...
