“Depression is stupid and not a thing that makes me a better writer. One time I went a whole year without writing and I stayed in bed and drank. Fuck your Bukowskisms. I want sunlight and love and running down some street I’ve never been on where it’s warm and cool at the same time and I’m smiling. I want nothing to ever be bad again- and I don’t mean that I want a life free of conflict, I mean that I want a life free of meaningless conflict. Not being able to will oneself to take a shower or leave the house is meaningless. There is nothing to be gained, no lesson to be learned from that kind of life. My heart is stale, my prose is stale. Give me fire if you want to hurt me. Give me something I can taste. There’s nothing romantic or mysterious about where I am. There’s nothing here worth holding onto.”

adjust, tell,
touch, tremble
like a murmur;
we chew scenery,
swallow up roses,
secret stories &
a hounds  chorus &
to tell the truth i
try to forget as often
as i remember: until the
shake, mystery, immersive,
walking up over an ascension
within, like sleeping, like an
imaginarium of trundled lips;
and we grow naked, tired,
honest like rivers, nude,
exposed, still moment;
and we adjust, to tell, out
loud, quiet like an estuary,
an afterward of dreaming; and 
we feel our hearts open, pump, 
thought, of everything, that may 
just might be a was, or is as an is,
like this borealis, of our skin, trembling.


Eric Standley, a Virginia-based artist who works with laser-cut paper, creates amazing and awe-inspiring layered paper cuts of extraordinary complexity that successfully marry Gothic and Islamic architectural elements in tiny cathedral-like spaces.
