...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 )
 
   
 
 

CIVILIZATION COMING OUTTA CLAY CUPS

CIVILIZATION COMING OUTTA CLAY CUPS

From the first time
we decided to make cups
it was civilization

Kindness cups
luxury libation on lip
bounty shared with kin

Like to say
witness our happiness, guests
with these taste tests
from our hostess

Cups, accoutrements for
convenience & ease

Wild pan dance dependent on
civilization, really, pressed fruit harvest
aggregate of agriculture, art & illustration helices
twining grape leaf flourishes

Drink, drink, eat, eat

Civilization like a condensate
Earth’s creation

Mud brick potter buildings
city hive womb–Nature

Bees looking out of windows
bees on balconies, hanging laundry
waving below, flagging arms o’er

Pedestrians
on the boulevard to
starlit energy nightlife

Firelight in their free time, slipping
by pillars of columns,
bridges and
libraries
