"Smoking used to pass the time
And smoking became a waste of time
And talking became a waste of time
And my life became a pantomime”
"you are a lighthouse
you are what guides my boats to shore
and you are a raindrop
the water that washes my mind pure
and you are a whirlwind
you are the light that fills my spaces
and i’m a disciple
to the patron saint of pretty faces”
"My hands shake, shivers down my spine
To see your eyes wide
I want you to never leave this car
It’s my smallest part in the sacred heart
I’d say, you can come inside
please be all mine
I want just to freeze you where you are
And make you part of the sacred heart
of the sacred heart”
Listen/purchase: Sacred Heart by Bellows
"and i saw her mouth
protecting her pearl
putting a scar
on the symmetrical
and i used to dream
of such great things
but the moths look like leaves
until they open their wings”
Listen to/purchase: Until I Open My Wings by Small Wonder

A brief description from the O.G. announcement:
5 years of pictures from one of my favorite places in New York, Shea Stadium — in both its incarnations. Screaming; hollering; screamhollering. Bodies, oh God, the bodies — they are everywhere and they are all young and beautiful. The best friends you will ever have on the best night of your life. Handsome covers printed in glowing silver ink by my good friends at ACME Letterpress.
Please consider ordering this if you owe me, in lieu of drinks.
Please consider ordering this for your nieces and nephews if you are afraid they will end up boring.
Please consider ordering this if you are in it, because soon you will be burdened with responsibilities and a job and being in a smelly room on a Tuesday doesn’t sound as fun as a new episode of NCIS.
I love you all.
First edition numbered and limited to 105 copies:
For those of you living in NYC I offer hand-delivery, so you can meet me and shake my hand, should you so desire!
