art

are they for sale
not yet - we cant figure it out
art for good
take it all

here's the short version
i started on canvas after 9/11
newspapers photos tissue tears
ripped up by me
glued into place
painted over

then just paint

then p town
6 months after tv
saw a painting at a tiny gallery
that moved me
i never bought a piece of art b4
the guy in the place said it was 6000 dollars
and even though i am rich
it seemed insane

"now mazda has a truck for just fifty seven ninety five ---saints alive"

looked at kel
she said go on
but... well....i wasn't sure
i asked the man if it was titled
cause i never name mine
and he said 9/12

spingle
i bought it
met the artist and his mom
both familiar
known almost

the canvas would not fit on our car
so mother and son said they would deliver it
the perks of fame - a week later
they arrived with left over hot wings
perfection

so the mom asks what i am gonna do with all the paintings
there in my first garage studio
i told her to take em
to sell em if she could
to give my profits to charity
she did
it worked well

then fame came it
and it got all nuts
my only rule was
i wont go to my openings
i went to four
torture

so i got em all back
1600 canvas sit
in a storage unit
with a padlock
around the block

i spoke to the mom recently
the son no longer painting
ahh life
i took 9/12 off the wall
and started chipping at it
layer upon layer
wood foam plastic
glued stuck together

i put on the black album
loud as it goes
when it finished
i was done

left under more paint
then i have ever used ever
was bright yellow

gregg's heart
i call it - it's not for sale

and now again
this lil blog thing

david karr from the ny times
a paper i have only just started to read

asks me
is it you - the blog
and howard
and my trial
and it all churns over and over

what do you want to let it
it is a choice we make
moment 2 moment

keep it real
the only rule
