...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 )

Out at the In-laws 6

Vroomin’ past Vrooman Road
60 miles east to ma-&-pa-in-laws house we go
(Lady trying to sleep en route)
for gifts and greetings and early Christmas eating
amidst the snow and row
(secret tokes outside in blow)
and when done’s said
instead of home to hide from cold
100 miles southwest to more in-laws cause
(Lady ensleep, me enwheel)
for gift and greeting and too much food eating
more magic tokes in the snow
hidden from in-law know
hours to go
meat dairy egg prowl vegan stomach
sleep slides down eyes
which pop in surprise when small dog
raises hind and pisses on Lady’s leg
till 12 hours ending we head 60 miles north to home
(Lady alay in sleep, sleep atugging my peeps)
on Xmas empty roads
no one in either direction as far as the crow can cry
me unasleep at the wheel.
