con|fection : Kickstarter from elesed on Vimeo.

This is the Kickstarter video for con|fection, a poetic video centered on race, class and sexuality as it relates to the historical context of sugar, Kara E. Walker’s exhibition of A Subtlety and the Domino Sugar Factory in Brooklyn, NY.

I’ll take photos and shoot video of the exhibition, combine the footage with personal poetry and later perform it all live, accompanied by musicians.

A special thanks goes to Stuart Wilson for letting me shoot at Tinderbox Cincinnati, to Drew Phipps for assisting with the shoot and perfecting the audio, as well as Lexington Colton who permitted me to use the rough edition of her musical track Don’t Stand.

*All of the Kara E. Walker exhibition footage belongs to Evan Simon of The Wall Street Journal, All Rights Reserved.

stained pearls

the teeth know when to let the mouth speak 
when to form thought into sound, sound into letters
strung into words, wombed by the wet backs of cheeks
and the sealed fold of lips. the teeth know
when to let the mouth speak but,
i can’t stop my tongue from bleeding.

i find it hard to talk about ‘art’ with people when what’s created isn’t ‘visible’ or ‘tangible’ or capable of being installed. words matter—

dude, it’s been an emotional week:

i feel like a pawn|that’s be chewed on|by a dog|disregarded and kicked| behind the stove|collecting dirt|and food crumbs|i wish it was last summer|when i was practically homeless|and spent half my time|laying in the grass of parks|napping on porches and rooftops|in June, fire escapes feel like a stone massage|real sleep only existed in the mornings|after pushing the limits of my liver|like i, spitefully, was proving a point|sometimes, i think about all the people|i’ve been and i get exhausted|i get sad about chameleon|spirit|mad about realizing how fake a smile is
