...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 )

The Parse & Shuffle

Salamanders are moist and sticky
regenerate limbs
the only vertebrate to do

I’m sweating sticky moist
Mom said I regenerated my foreskin
I am not a salamander

What I need to regenerate
is my child eye innocence
to view true again

Decades dull the edge
scar the heart
off the aim

The door perceived
I cannot reset see
I am experienced

I sit in the dark
watch the traffic light change
bet on the color
