...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 )

Checklist Sisyphus

Coffee’s got a bit of kick to it
this pre-sunrise
so there’s hope in the gloom

Pain’s not as sharp as it was
as I compare today’s rock
to today’s hill

Have some stuff
lost lots more
along the way

Comes down to friends
family
pets

Mixed with sun, wind, rain, clouds,
sky, now, then, when,
why

And pain
of course
and pain

But stringing it all together
is the smile
getting us through this darkness

And the laugh
of course
leaking between the seem
