...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )

philosophies 152-164

Philosophy 152

You know you are doing something right
when the purring gets louder


Philosophy 153

Fire, bone music, stories
the whence from which we came


Philosophy 154

We wake in pain
to feathered flesh
that never will arrive


Philosophy 155

Man is a pile of dirt minus one rib,
a sloppy eater that needs a bib,
a hunk of meat devouring itself,
mostly lower shelf.


Philosophy 156

Sometimes look in the word bucket
and it’s empty
sometimes full but all messed up


Philosophy 157

It’s the process
not the end point
that’s the point


Philosophy 158

Do what you can
with what you get


Philosophy 159

It’s all fluid
a big flexible water whorl weighed with hook
and bite of tooth and claw


Philosophy 160

The face in the mask is
peeking through


Philosophy 161

Whatever the while
Do your best
And offer a smile
To prime the rest


Philosophy 162

Well crack my bred
spread my jam
in this jelly place of am


Philosophy 163

Wrinkles are the face’s wealth
we iz what we iz and that’s all yam am.


Philosophy 164

Drink my tea, smoke my dope
Shuck this patriarchal collar rope
Get to work on help and hope
