Lovejuice, 1998, Oil on canvas
Lovejuice, 1998, Oil on canvas"Love         Juice"       My mind         is a plug         and the universe         is the socket.         My mind fits         into it         like a hand         in a pocket.         I can feel         the current         oozing through my         circuitry.         Becoming part of me.         It's a lot of juice         for me to hold inside.         Gotta let it loose.         Let it flow out         onto the paper         and out among         the people;         an inverted         black hole         of love.         My mind         is a plug.--Deron Cohen
