Thank you for purchasing, finding, or otherwise acquiring my zine, About A Bed! This is the second in an ongoing series of these zines. It’s an absolute thrill to low-key publish in this way!
This story is about, well, my bed, and one other person. I wanted to share this, but because of the intimate nature and the persons continued presence in my life, it seemed best to revisit this zine idea like I did with Glorious. I love writing personal stories but these pieces that involve other folks in an intimate way who might not want these details shared widely need to be handled with more care.
The zine you are holding in your hand was designed by luke kurtis, a dear friend and frequent collaborator. Most notably he inspired and designed my books The Animal Book and Tentative Armor, and the Glorious zine I mentioned above. So much of my work now is about these publications, and it was luke who inspired me in this way. The first About A Bed zines were hand folded and bound with needle and thread by me in a limited edition of 35. Each one was signed, numbered, and made available to my Patreon community for a limited time. It’s a really beautiful feeling to create these objects by hand and send them out into the world to people who so fully believe in my work.
The track is meant to represent the feelings in the story. Honestly, I don’t want to say too much more about it than that so you can have the experience that is right for you with the story and sounds.
Thanks for checking this out and for taking the time to find this page. You can download the track and the zine in various formats using the links below.

p.s. This page is hidden on my site and from search engines. It’s only meant to be seen by those who have the zine. Please help me keep this page secret. <3
