...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 )
 
   
 
 

surplus meat

I have 10 fotos, 9 poems, 1 song featured on Medusa’s Kitchen. As always, publisher/editor Kathy Kieth’s magic eye layout makes my happy/mad submission flow better than it should.

This is my 23rd monthly feature on Medusa… appreciate the gig.

Sisyphus Security

There’s rock,
there’s hill,
there’s knowing what to do.

But rocks can break,
hills wear away,
and knowing’s site specific.

So I could lose my gig,
have no place to go,
no rock, no hill, no roll.

Got no retirement fund,
no fallback plan,
no rescue from the mud.

Heading up to Big Box Store,
apply as a greeter
to remain an eater.

So sayeth me,
surplus meat
in this land of sharpened teeth.

– Smith, 11.1.2017
