PYLON, mixed media, 2012, figure about 4” tall

(background video recorded in Altamont, CA)

You’re running and you’re hoping

    that it’s making you fit.

You’re running and you’re wishing

    that you’re losing some weight.

You’re running and pretending

    that your chest doesn’t hurt.

But you can’t run away from your broken heart.

Years you smoked a pack a day.

Nights you drank the pain away.

Pile on pounds of crap you ate.

How could you live without love till today?

You’re running and you’re running and

    you’re running away...
