...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 )
 
   
 
 

Dancing at the Edge of Dawn

Dancing at the Edge of Dawn

I wish I could take her fear away,
yours too,
yet I am a part,
carried in the apple of the orchard
naked and red and throbbing with juice,
green leaves hiding nothing but worm,
that harbinger of snake signifying thin liquid
being and somethingness,
licking your shin with tongue forked wet with wanting.

It is counterintuitive, but blood follows softness,
its sacrificial altar hard with stone,
and fire,
alone.

– Smith, 11.25.2013
