FOUR DISPOSABLE LIGHTERS ARE INDIVIDUALLY LIT AND HELD CONTINUOUSLY UNTIL THEY MELT; THE LIGHTERS ARE THEN ARRANGED AFTER AN ELLSWORTH KELLY PAINTING.
one of these times
it’ll be the best I can do
and I’ll never even know it
I’ll never again approach it
perhaps it’s already done
but I’ll never know that
so I’ll just keep going until...
I know my moment has passed
... but I’ll never ever know that...
this is a monument to
the sound after the moment has passed
the sound one makes after your moment has passed
the silence after your moment has passed
I don’t think I’ve ever said anything that is truly truly truthful...
but if that’s true, it’s also a lie
... so saying something smart
saying something that lands with impact
that won’t last
every rose has it’s thorn,
at least according to Bret Michaels,
every moment has it’s passing
and everything I think;
I think is naive in a few years time
and I’m trying to be honest
to honesty itself
I put it all out there for transparency
I put it out there so that the future me has something to make fun of
something to be embarrassed about
.... if I’m being honest
