Peter Anton, Conversation Candies (2012). 9 x 9 x 3 inch mixed media. We found these at Keszler Gallery on Madison.
And my dad was donating as well.
So when he laid down on the table seat across from me to get hooked up,
he asked me who was the troll girl with the horns I cosplay…
and I told him Nepeta from Homestuck.
So the entire time we were both giving blood he would yell
I’M DONATING BLOOD FOR NEPETA
I’M DOING THIS FOR HOMESTUCK. THE TROLLS NEED MY BLOOD.
AND SO I’M JUST STRAPPED DOWN ACROSS FROM HIM UNABLE TO DO ANYTHING
WHILE BLOOD IS PUMPING OUT OF ME YELLING BACK AT HIM
NO, DAD, STOP YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND
nearly choked on my drink…
