Theme Week

Mid-week theme for the Comicverse is FLYING! In honor of Ying the dragon, one of the staff of the comic shop on the final frontier!

LIFE (5/16/2006)

In cups I drown

worried yellow dripping like hot wax into my lungs

when all I want is your skin on my tongue

are you amongst the liquid waves?

Hell no!

you’re above the clouds like airborne seeds

flying on wind

connected in quantum gusts

planting in my fertile mind.

The roots have taken hold

weaving infinite patterns into my skull

and life is a little less dull.

Will I be juicy enough for you?

My little tree whose soul is deeper than


and taller than pines…

grow upwards towards heaven and tickle

the feet of Buddhas

they will laugh and pluck your leaves

and as they place your esscence on their tongues,

peace will be achieved.

The Comicverse is one of many projects they have collaborated on, and their most popular. Bianca is the writer and and Steve is the artist. Sometimes Bianca writes and plots the stories; many stories are co-plotted by Bianca and Steve.
