Our Necropsy….

sex and art are the same thing – says Picasso.
Purdys’ book was titled – sex and death
catalogued next to – love in a burning building
quoted in songs – no i do not love you

one Picasso reference
3 Purdy’s

I am Canadian
an Ontario’n

lost in the woods
found in the city
returned to the trees

finding you

you are always there

proof there is God
proof that art matters
proof eve is still haunting the forest

sex and art are the same thing – what do you think Mr.Purdy?
you are too busy battling death
and i

i am busy making sure – you my darling love
know i could never – hate the word….
