I bought a shark headed puppet at the dollar store.  Then I bought a couple of dolls.  This is what happened next.

This reminds me of the painting I did called 'the former Miss America', for the poem of the same name.


 The former Miss America  ate all her dinners raw,  tucking every extra morsel, bloody  in her bra.

Bought a shark puppet from the dollar store.  Took some photos, put them on Facebook.  Someone said something, and I said, 'you're lucky I didn't buy a barbie doll'.  So I did.

I filled the bath with warm water and took these photographs.  I'm going to do at least one painting from them.  The fun you can have from two items from the dollar store, and the thrift shop.

Coughing up bones,

we expel our emotions,

love-sick for blood

in delirious oceans.

Shark head puppet red haired bbdoll painting.  Light on the water.  Still needs more work, but it's getting there.  The text will be last.

Did a bit more work on the blue edge, and added some white highlights to the patterned background.  The text is next.  That will take some time to do.
