Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )

Life Lines
=======

Budget

Money gets smaller
While the bills, well they do rise
Punch new hole in belt

~ ~ ~

Score

Stash is running low
The old guilt resurfaces
Stay strong, or weak buy

~ ~ ~

Tempus

The day steps quickly
The night even faster moves
And so goes my me

~ ~ ~

Postcoital

The caterpillar
Glistens in night-sparkled dew
Hides in its foreskin

~ ~ ~

Thermophile

Night heat creaks away
On little metal mouse feet
The cold slithers in

~ ~ ~

Soak

Lying in liquid
Wet deep heat in the bathtub
I merge, become one

~ ~ ~

Older

Teeth are falling out
My muscle body broken
But I am wiser

~ ~ ~
