See POCZP member Cristy C. Road on tour with Sister Spit: The Next Generation!
This year’s tour features Michelle Tea, Ali Liebegott, Dave End, Texta Queen, Daniel Levesque, and of course CCR!
As Cristy aptly put it:
Too many queer boners in one sentence? Its okay, the universe prefers it that way. Come out and listen to us read and perform from our latest projects, laugh a little, rage a little, gaze into your lovers eyes and cry a little……

“Growing up happens within each heartbeat. We can't bestow, let alone understand, our changes, although they trigger our every gesture. We learn a lesson from every mistake, every apology, every assumption at love, every new friend, every lost friend, every reconciliation, every death, every bout of belligerence, every bad decision, every kiss, every fuck, and every failed attempt at starting that stupid punk rock band. And while we abandoned the idealizing of adolescent outcast culture, a harmless identity was still, never meant to be. And it wasn't invincibility, but we were surviving outside of those conditions we had fought off for years. In the end, we remained poised while doing what we were never meant to do. And people often told me that teenagers were never meant to love themselves.”—from “Indestructible” by Cristy C. Road
Such originality on display in the Lima art scene.
It’s bad enough that such substandard art would be par for the course of the Lima art scene, but the fact that these are plagiarized? And that both are still childishly scrawled and completely awful? My head spins just looking at these all at once.
