...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 )

Ms. MandyCat

Hold her to my breast.
Hear burblechirp in her chest.
Love her birdcoo purr.

– Smith, 2.24.2014

Recorded song below week ago but didn’t post because the music swamps the vocals – but now I think on it, that might not be such a bad thing, so here it is. Click here to hear Status Report

Music, mix, recording Peter Ball; words, vocals me.

Status Report

My death will make no news
half-hung no flag will fly
but it makes no matter
cuz I may not choose to die

East of Eden
West of gloom
Wanting sun
But trapped by moon

I keep most words in mind
share them not with folk
since some are hurt and more unkind
while many more don’t hear what’s spoke

East of Eden
West of gloom
Wanting sun
But trapped by moon

I try to walk good path
be fair in word and deed
yet they call me psychopath
because I care for poor in need

East of sun
West of moon
Wanting Eden
Trapped by gloom
