This image is representational of the cumbersome time Kristen spent living confined in a hypothetical cave, due to an abusive relationship controlling all aspects of her life and mind. The feeling of dragging a coffin around in the darkness as a strange character, hidden away, was heavily encumbering on her psyche. "Cave" is a reflection of being buried, and coming back.

"Addict Named Nymph" by Dave Glass
"There is no hope opening the scarred over wounds
Bound in rotted veins and dead roots of dread
Despair lingers in the mind like a transorbital lobotomy
Rendering you suicidal, damaged and forlorn
It waits for you to feed with vermin mining in the garbage and darken canals to nowhere
We are all roaches in the trenches of cracked sidewalks
Drowning in a sea of warm festering malt liquor
dog shit and dope bags" - Dave Glass
"Addict Named Nymph" street art under the EL train in Kensington Fishtown Section of Philadelphia
DAWN 11:11 street art thrown up during the Covid 19 Pandemic in April 2020, where Kristen and Dave lived at the time, adjacent to the infamous, most vile, horrendous scenes of human depravity in the Kensington section of Philadelphia.

Originally this piece was created as flyer art and slapped up on the streets of South Philly, for Doomed To Obscurity in 2012. D.T.O. was the last band Dave drummed for living in Philadelphia that disbanded in 2016, hence the band name.
