Bunny Bearhead
She slapped him and threw back the heart-shaped box of chocolates the second he uttered the word, 'sorry'.  She reluctantly put on the bear head.  It smelled like the inside of a rental bowling shoe.  Bunny climbed up onto the giant french soup bowl and struck the pose.  Later...

A great review of 'The Smile Sessions' here

Stand Tall
It was the aural equivalent of the Loch Ness Monster.  Adrift from time, both familiar and strange.  If you squinted at it just so, the disorientation came from the juxtaposition.  The strength as a full piece is staggering.  Later...

The skull belonged to Rudy's father.  He brought it back from the dump site in Bisbee.  He knew the family that was charged with body disposal and had seen them litter the human remains in the field.  It could have been his mother.  He brought her there for cremation and had scattered the 'ashes' in the Pinaleo mountains per her request.  Later...

The painful day
Shara stopped to smell the roses when Buzzy buzzed by.  She opened her shirt to share her new tattoo with Buzzy and his disinterest brought a tear to her cobalt blue eyes.  He beelined for the red, red rose in her hair and as she tried to shoo him away, he stung her on her thumb right below the blak painted nail.  Later...

There's a train a-coming
Wendy wanted up to see the mini-cyclone as it rolled down the track.  The crisp Colorado air and the slightly surreal setting was like a snapshot of the bucolic still lifes Barney liked to paint in his spare time.  The pink pocket square matched the cherry blossoms emanating from his pipe.  Later...

Lord of the bathroom remodel
Mike and Frank had picked through most of the obvious treasure and were about to call it a day when the shiny gleam of the mannequin head flashed in the sunny San Pedro yard and caught their eye.  The Sacred Heart statue was superglued into the old basin, never to be free of the cracked porcelain prison.  They bought the tin santo for 10 bucks.  Later...

Arnie had just one piece left to complete his transformation and that pesky fly had it taped to his back.  What kind of a cruel joke was this?  He was taunting him with that almost perfect piece of Zircon.

Elvis Boxer
To commemorate the day Elvis died in 1977 Maria created this Dios del Muerto doll.  She made the king of rock and roll a skeleton boxer because that is how she saw him when she closed her eyes and softly hummed Love Me Tender.  She saw him in Vegas in the 70s and still slept with the sweat-soaked white polyester scarf he gently wrapped around her neck one balmy August night.  Later...

Burf the lantern fish was growing psilocybin mushrooms like barnacles on his back.  The light was there to lead the way, but Burf could not keep his eyes off of it.  He travelled his fish tank endlessly, staring at the glowing orb until his eyes burned out.  The other lantern fish enjoyed the fruits of his dorsal growth, but not Burf.  He was the Tiresias of bottom feeders.  Later...
