DEATHWISH/ FRIENDSHIP BRACELET
I go Godzilla Claus
By Zac Dunn
Art by Mark Mothersbaugh
Published Issue 093, September 

On the in-laws and floss

Like Bob Ross

Spill the sauce all

Arrogantly like an albatross

8 and 1/2 years later

Stew wing beats like

Gorbachev

Botched and hors d’oeuvres

The 7th letter

Never forgetter

Polo concreto

Critical break down

Abound face the t

emple of doom

Like short round

Kali Ma Shakti de

Display anatomies

Mythically dissected

Cantankerous convoluted

Excluded odd man out

In the Union

Jesus Youngstown

Crown of creatures

Upon noggins

Kenny didn’t log in

Ghost producer

Super user

Synapsys salivate

Sojourn subtext

That you’ve already unlearned

The terroir is a Terror

Terry took turns

Taking liberties

Torrented by terrorists

Talk is cheap and the wine is good

The color is musty

But the nose is still hood

Ratatouille went

Kablewy upon the alter

Of the recently

Decapitated chewy

The workers die

But work lives on

Blessed be the meager

Minions and peons

Residing in galvatron

Tetsuo sex style

Blue velvet in the sheets

Nothing ever worth doing

Ever intends to repeat

Pop will eat itself

God will be the wealth

Ego over Id

While the manikin

Is the undisputed

champion of the people

The stark reality

Abound seeking

Shutter islands

Of silence

No equal.

Zac Dunn is a psycho-social mechanic, father, musician and dreamer. Check out his music and follow him on Twitter and Instagram.

Check out his last Birdy install, 21 Band Names Or The Road To Hell Paved With Chum, here.


Mark Mothersbaugh is a Conceptualist. As an undergraduate art student at Kent State University, Mark began creating work in the late 60’s and has created tens of thousands of works to the current day in various mediums including, rubber stamp designs, mail art, decals, prints, ink illustrations, oil paintings, ceramic sculptures, manipulated photographs, video, film compositions, sonic sculptures, rugs, screen savers and so on.

While touring with his band DEVO, it was not uncommon for Mark to lightly “correct” or add onto the bland paintings and prints that adorned the many hundreds of otherwise unmemorable hotel rooms that he occupied for one night at a time. Using a van, bus, hotel room, airplane, or any space as his workspace, he has created over 40,000 drawings which serve as the genesis of ideas that later emerge in his larger projects.

Mark views much of his work as experiments in “beatnik-stream of consciousness” poetry, which to him, is related to speaking in tongues; the surrendering of the intellect to the primordial, or science vs. faith

An observer among us, Mark writes down things that he overhears throughout the day … people at another table, a voice on the radio, pieces of verbal fabric that drift and weave and create the poetry of life, the flotsam and jetsam that swirl around us and fill our subconscious with scraps of what it is to be, according to Mark, a “thinking ape.”
