Some Kind Of Cleansing


Blood be gone and hell swell obtuse,

Living with a paintbrush lady.

Her name is Sheba. She lives in the sky.

She is a star and eats leg of lamb and octopus.

She keeps me company and is an albino.

Sometimes she sits on my falling head.

Oh golden boats and pods!

 Heaven of flying dirt harsh under the wall

We suffer to speak so.

We have many wounds, no?

Frogs are flying a green way.

To dream along the ebb tide

Trapped inside a dragon.

Comparisons in the tabernacle

Worms sleep inside of me.

All clouds and test tubes

Wind moving the grass where rooster goes.

Licking the skyscraper-

Oh that I could go to the sky

Where I might find a clear knowing.

Where the water goes and a high cliff comes

Church is a living crab

With three heads and a line for a neck.

Their shape is distorted

By reds and greens and white yellowing.

People have a girl curve adventure

And are ghostly feminine.

Have all kinds of colours that distract me.

Please be aware of bad things.

It is some kind of cleansing.

Thanks to Lauren Slater and her wonderful book “Welcome to My Country” from which I’ve sampled phrases to incorporate into this piece. So this piece is by Slater/Thing.


ExquisiteMisery's Profile Picture
Jay Patrick Murphy
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
In my life art, whether visual, musical or textual is my foremost means of expression, therapy and communion with a higher level of being. I began making music as a child, inspired by The Beatles and the pop music of the time. While in Chorus Class in elementary school, I was picked to sing a solo version of "Maria" from "West Side Story", giving me an enormous boost of confidence in my vocal abilities and though never making it professionally, I continue to write and record for friends and family and my own sheer enjoyment of it. I've always loved visual art but owe a debt of gratitude to my High School art instructor Mr. Skeets for encouraging me in the area of visual art. I began drawing, then doing watercolours and 'found object sculptures' by the eighties. I bought my first PC in 2001 and a dear friend installed software that allowed me to digitally 'paint'. I instantly fell in love with this form of expression and have been doing it ever since. I tend to wear my influences on my sleeve- Warhol, Dali and Basquiat being the main three. Recently unemployed, it would be nice to make a living on my art. I was born in Washington D.C. and still live but a stone's throw away from there. I'm fairly reclusive and quite eccentric- get to know me and I'll share more juicy personal stuff like that with you!

Dreamer, Prince of Neurotics, Rebel, Legend in My Own Mind. Gypsy, Tramp, Thief. I live for art in all its different forms- music, painting, poetry, dance, theater, film. Art is what keeps me going, especially on those days when depression drags me to its lower depths. I've been a working class hero since my teens and I'm tired of it. My dream is to live off my artwork. I've been creating computer assisted art since 2001 and writing, performing and producing music since the late 70's as Jay Thing.
