Crystalline Nixon – Xmas Body Horror

Crystalline Nixon

Xmas Body Horror

i think by now
i have enough
foodstuff stored inside
the cavities in which
my wisdom teeth used to hide
to feed you for a month,
pro bono.
likewise i’d appreciate
a little slice of pinky nail
in my christmas stocking,
signed by the artist
and sharpened to a
beautiful simmering edge
the stainless steel knives
on QVC and HSN would
shake their heads and quiver at.


Crystalline Nixon is a shard of broken glass at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. Ethernet cables run from his body all the way to the Mongolia’s southern border by way of tunnels. Follow him on Twitter @toom_buck for updates on what he finds on the ocean floor.
