...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 )

lady k’s set up a poetry reading tonight at the poetry cafe downtown london for the british contingent of her City Poetry zine. i initiated another reading for us next thursday – Two Olde Farts & a Chick with Jazzman John Clarke, a Beat influenced poet. be nice to have a wee taste of reading after such a long cultural dry spell.

Slave and Masturbation

An old plow hand, I play acoustic
Foreskin, hairy palms, white cane
Puberty, the fish and the fingers.
Old acids etch anew my brain.
The old wants? They still imply
Unoffered breasts, often rejected.

Original sin is condition given
So the knee bores say.
Yet dark ripples still unstill light.
Small deaths linger lightly on sheets
No longer washed nor nightly scented
With reason wrinkled or raw.
