previous pageWe had to climb on top of a building, and use a ladder to get up to the billboard. We used ropes to hang off the top of the billboard and change it. Fetish Times printed a picture of it because of the S&M implications. 

"The first night we went there we got about half of it stuck up and then the cops came, because I guess they thought we were trying to break into the building. . . we tricked them and got away. Then I went back the next night by myself and stuck the eyes up and some of the mouth and finished it up. It was in the Chronicle the next day.  And I had a warning up there saying that they couldn't take it down for "x" number of days. They left it up, I guess, four or five days."

"They took down one of the other billboards that we did. . . way before they were supposed to, so we went around and filled up fire extinguishers with red paint and painted "KILL!" on about twelve billboards all around town, in letters about twelve feet high. And then my neighbor flipped out that week and killed some guy he didn't even know; the guy was leaving for work next door and he shot him in the back with a .357 magnum right through the window, and the window still has a hole in it. I think he thought he was someone else he had gotten in an argument with about his dogs, a  week before. He flipped out and killed the guy 'cause he kinda had the same color hair." 

"Anyway, somehow I knew that if I got up I would do something terrible that day. I just felt like I "had it in me," so to speak. I had just spent the last three days passing between my bed and the toilet, each time rising, feeling the familiar eclipse of my sickened delerium.  So often I thought of suicide. . . always coming to the conclusion that I loved this sweet suffering too much to end it. So I would wind up pacing around the house in a big circle that took me through all of the rooms, past all of the windows." 

"When I got up out of bed that morning, I reached between the mattress and the box spring and pulled out the gun. I was absently fingering the pistol as I passed the windows. I wasn't really thinking about it much when I shot him, it just kind of happened. After I pulled the trigger. . . it was like. . . I woke up. I guess I didn't even open the window—just shot right through it. I suppose it wasn't really either of our faults. . . he never did anything to me. . . I don't even recall ever having seen him before. I like to think that it just happened, and we happened in it."
