made sure I felt oblivious
made sure there were no witnesses
told me no truths
only spoke lies
knew what she wanted
got it - more or less
knew it wasn't me
took me in anyway

endured the abuse
took the pain of her past
was suddenly empowered
took it out on me and
crushed me into tiny pieces
"whoomp"'ed - "there it is" on my heart

never checked to see if i was still breathing
never asked if i was alright
never caressed or cared
killed me
resurrected me
threw me over board
never wanted to know me
is why i write these poems

i walk through a browned boulevard
freckles of cloves light my eyes
the hills i climb reach no valleys
once upon a time we were good

The NuErotic Art and Performance Exhibit was tonite. Dorthea and Tamara pulled off a great night in a cool space. Right off Sunset in Echo Park, The NuErotic was located in a large space with a huge dance floor, 20' ceilings and a nice lounge area with a fire roaring in the corner. Here's some Hipstamatic shots.

The night incorporated a fashion show, dancers, a performance by Tamara and Dorthea, lots of art, loungin', dancin', some amazing musicians, a performance by Toledo, and living art.
