I Fully Intended It to Look Like a Slightly Crooked Penis

After my last blackout incident, I began to experiment. I’ve been searching for different ways to present my poem bits. Ripping the edges worked once, so I tried it again. This time, I was going for an eerily melty, slightly crooked penis look. It seems I got it, don’t you think?

You’ve probably already guessed that I used recycled coffee filters as my canvas. The rest of my supplies included a small hammer, a very thin nail, a needle and some light green thread.

I wrote the expanded poem bit on the coffee filter, and tore the blackout’s edges to form the organ. Once the shape could be appreciated in all its crooked glory, I took the wee hammer and nail and punched two rows of crisscrossed holes all around it. Then came the stitching.

This was my first fully intentional project. I, of course, shall continue my crafty exploration. And only Fate (and a rather imaginative naughty Universe) knows what image we’ll get next.

a (not so) wee note…
– Do I have to shout “April Fools’ Day?” I hope not. Still, my crafty organ and I have some serious explaining to do. Let me start by saying that the only April Fools element of this post is the title… more accurately, my claim to have intended to shape the blackout like a penis. The truth is that I worked on this piece in the middle of the night, while I was in lot of pain. I didn’t realize what the thing looked like until my Piano Man walked up to me and said, “Is that a penis?” Then completely horrified, he added, “And you are stitching it!” I stopped the needled, took a good look, and burst out laughing. I roared so hard I forgot about the pain.
– If you are thinking that Freud would have a field day with this piece, then we share similar thoughts… especially if you are cackling hysterically while thinking said thoughts. 😀

  1. Oh my…I thought the title as dialogue from one of your characters. Then I burst out laughing as I scrolled down and saw your unique and naughty creation! Thank you for the laughs so early in the morning.😅

  2. I was completely fooled. I easily believed that you might intended that. I even tried to decipher your creative intentions behind the penis.
    I am so sorry you were in pain. I wish I could take it away…

  3. Bwahahahaha…poor Piano Man!!! Bet he is struggling to sleep peacefully after the sound of your maniacal laughter… while sticking needles in a penis 😀 XXX

  4. Well, now! I actually think it (stitched penis) fits rather nicely with the expanded bits. I mean, really, what better way to screw with fate! Hahaha
    Love the look of your words on the coffee filter!

  5. What a GREAT post!!! I like your penis and glad Piano Man didn’t run for the door when he saw it being stitched…not that you would ever do that in this world, well maybe LOL!!! This post is too funny and the words written on the coffee filter are beautiful to me! Big hugs and hope for a great weekend! Rasz

  6. The title is likely the best one I’ve read this year – talk about a “hook”, LOL….and I felt an “ouch” similar to your Piano Man when I contemplated the stitching. You are such a hoot. You will liven up April for us for sure.

  7. Bwahahahahahahahhaha! Props to him not running into the night screaming, as some men might have been tempted to do.

    The poem is fabulous, and I agree with Sharon. I think it’s a hysterical way to say “Screw you!” to Fate.

  8. I love the fact that it’s stitched into a coffee filter. I’m not sure whether that is considered mutimedia art, but it is still amazing and goes outside the usual confines of poetry.
