...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 )

5-fer +

good livelihood Lady

Once again, tomorrow’s poem today — you too can see the future.

5-fer +

Hearing her
whisking through doorways draped with plastic for heat
whack! whack! whack! disclosing
both speed and direction in direct quantum violation
I know she’s coming for me.

One more whack and “Hey honey,
I can get us in to Earth Fest for free
if we volunteer two hours.”

“Sure, go for it.”

She whacks out
as I sink back in hot horizontal liquid
my mind thumb up saying
yea, that’s an easy 2-fer, 3-fer, heck maybe a 5-fer plus
it keeps her happy and doctor says happy wife happy life,
we do good helping human animal planet,
find a few fair trade gifts,
get in free,
fresh foto feast,
harvest blog manna,
see fair from other side of table,
get this poem and new poem or two,
plus the no know unknowns and unknown knowns
and me getting to say ‘known noun own clown clone’
with a straight face safe
makes it a no-brainer no-painer 10 10-fer

(cept there’s always a pain or pay hidden somethere
cuz that’s the way and why of sumware).

– Smith, 4.1.2014

I do a lot of stuff with Lady I wouldn’t normally do anymore, or at all – political protests, socializing, eco-activism, farm petting zoos, viewing quilt competitions, county fairs, canning . . . I usually learn something and get some fotografs and text for the blog.

This morning we biked down to a traffic light so she could show stopped cars her hand drawn sign saying “Good Livelihoods and Clean Environment for Everyone! Worldwide” with its text and cheerful red and blue flowers, green dollar sign, and smiley yellow sun spread across a white cloud in a blue sky . . . a cheery protest sign so’s not to offend or upset. She’s like a gentle warrior, except she wouldn’t like the word war in warrior so she’s more a gentle peaceior.

good livelihood Lady & her sign
