Ballpoint pen on paper.

What it feels like to draw in between life events:

When I'm bored
I like to scratch a page with a ballpoint pen
scratching it until it bleeds enough imagination
to take the stains and turn them into something
when I'm bored
I like to think my hands aren't mine
that they belong to the thing I'm scratching to create
the thing that twists and turns with its own mind
its own desire
its own hands
when I'm bored
I contort my body and free my brain
I scratch, I scratch, I scratch
until that paper and that pen
have punched and kicked and kissed each other
enough to almost become human
when I'm bored
I become something more than human
and something less at the same time
because I am an artist
and when I'm bored
I am most unapologetic
about the whole violent, erotic, self indulgent experience.
