Cloth Clown is a poem and exhibition about a haunted rug named "Clownie" (based on a true story). Cloth Clown looks at the uncanniness of domestic objects and spaces through ceramics, textiles, and computer simulation.



Cloth Clown

floor grips cloak ground
day lays soft underfoot
clown stripes: black, yellow
nite gasps through window

disembodied square
roughly the size of a waffle
it parts the curtains
i kid you not
starched shape by morning
