  • Hey Cyanide Child,
    Who will you take tonight?

    Will it be the executioner with the sweet-boy-grin and the devil-in-his-eye
    or the other one
    with the amazingly soft and gentle...
    that took you by surprise - he being such a tall man

    Wondering what it would feel like
    if he
    touched you...
    would you... melt?

    Would you?
    like butter in his mouth

    Such a tragic thought honey,
    to drown in your own bloodstream.

    This is from a series of very large word paintings circ. 1992-1994
