"Hexacat Stumbles Upon a Wild Burmburry Patch"
Approx 22 x 26 inches (55 x 66 cm)
Oil on recycled wood

Though nobody has ever seen her eat, it is presumed that Hexacat’s favorite food is the fruit of Burmburry plants. Burmburries sprout from the center of large sunflower-like yellow petals and are rumored to cause intense psychedelic experiences in people who consume them. The flowers can grow in diameter up to 3 feet and the fruits themselves are supposedly sickly sweet. They only grow in sunny clearings of dense jungles.

I wrote this song several years ago and played guitar on the track. Gibby played bass and Robin sang. It’s still one of my proudest accomplishments.

Nobody Wants to Spend Eternity Alone

I, I was lost in your breeze,

Cul-de-sac sleeps

I reached across your eyes

Each black scratch, a tally to my genes.

And I, I’m so inappropriate at times

When I read your journals,

I know you don’t mind

Because you wanted me to dog-ear

The pages of your brain.

I spent ages in your amber light,

Listening to The Cramps on vinyl every night.

Though I had no choice,

I had to be

On your wall, watching you sleep,

Like sunlight, cigarette dreams

Tumbling across your memories.

I tried so hard to be here,

But you’d only tell me that

Nobody wants to spend eternity alone.

Nobody wants to spend eternity alone.

Nobody wants to spend eternity alone.

Nobody wants to spend eternity alone.

And I, I was found in your dreams,

Offering a scene

Where I graced your hand,

And told you what all these stories mean.

And I, I’m so puzzling at times,

When I over-analyze

The things you used to say

Just to tell if you’re what I guessed you’d be.

And I spent ages in your amber light,

Listening to The Cramps on vinyl every night.

Though I had no choice,

I had to be

On your wall, watching you sleep,

Like sunlight, cigarette dreams

Tumbling across your memories.

I tried so hard to be here,

But you’d only tell me that

Nobody wants to spend eternity alone.

Nobody wants to spend eternity alone.

Nobody wants to spend eternity alone.

Nobody wants to spend eternity alone.
