Frostbite Lobotomy

Doctor Moreau retracts his claws, says,
“You are running out of time,” says,
“Your eyes are falling out,” says,
“Your spirits are escaping your sockets.”

“Don’t let us go,” my eyes screech.
“You have no say,” the doctor responds,

“Your ears have developed cochmognitis.”
I don’t understand.
I ask. He responds.
“Your ears wake no frozen rivers.” says,
“No tinny frequencies
can unfasten the waters.”

Make sense, please.
I ask.
His napalm laugh echoes
the genocide pheromones.

It rattles my icy tunnels.
“The ones arched over your rivers.”
He saw my thoughts. Damn it.

They project in my frigid caverns,
like the Iceland mines.

I reach up, daintily caress
the icicles, for fear of shattering,
exploding ideas, like nuclear apples,
tempting no one, with dry, burnt

He says,
“I will preserve your mind
in the cryostasis masquerade.”


The good doctor’s eyes heighten,
“Your burdens are erased,” says,
as he extends his fangs

for the feast.

Hey, everyone. How are you? I’m doing pretty well. My name is Steven. I’ve been living in Pittsburgh for a few years now. What sort of projects have I been working on, you ask? Well, I’ve assisted with several indie film productions in that time, mostly directly behind the camera or working with camera operations. It has been pretty fun. I’ve also been working on several other projects individually. This website is a collection of those projects that I do on in my spare time. Please click on the links above to learn about some of the work that I do in digital media and writing. I hope you enjoy my collection, which is a combination of old, archived work and new content I am compelled to share with you. Please feel free to interact, engage, and help me make some friends and colleagues in the creative media communities!
