...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,

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
alas
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

– Smith, 8.29.2017
