The Coxmen


My character, it was decided, would be known as The Zookeeper, and I’d perform a sensuous dance with a giraffe. It wasn’t determined how we’d come to possess, care for and train a giraffe, but those are obstacles that I’m sure we can overcome. It was also decided that I would be fully clothed, except for my nipples, which will be bared at some point during the climax of the piece. I’m not wedded to the idea by any means, but, as of right now, I’m thinking of performing it to either Angel is a Centerfold by the J. Geils Band, if we can acquire the international rights, or a techno beat played under ambient audio collected at an Upton Sinclair-era Chicago slaughterhouse.

    For those wondering what instigated this post, I went to the Dreamland Theater last night to see my friend Forrest MCing a burlesque event. I had a good time. I particularly liked this one dance done with red feather fans to Clara Rockman’s version of the song Summertime on theremin. It was absolutely beautiful. Very Lynchian. I wish I’d had the courage to break out my camera. You would have loved it.

    On behalf of the Upton Sinclair Foundation and the estate of Upton Sinclair, we’d like to ask that the author’s name in no way be linked to marketing efforts on behalf of the Coxmen. As important and vital as the work of the Coxmen may be, it is the opinion of the Sinclair family that nipple-out giraffe seduction, even if play acted, falls outside of the realm of what they would like to have their family name associated with. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Yours truly,
    Cameron Trew
    Upton Sinclair Foundation Trustee

    I’d prefer the sounds of animals killing humans. Maybe you could get a hold of that audio Herzog listens to in Grizzly Man.
