...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 )


So often unadorned, just
presenting themselves as they grow
into whatever they’re pushing into,
disheveled, but characterized
by almost obsessive

Denigrated and hated
in a kind of reverse bigotry

A bigotry
against themselves, too
as they’ve permitted it, derided into
beer-can sloth, giving keys
to the random

That’s a kind of denigration
society’s had–that expectation
of men, and we’ve left many
little place to be, little role

There’s more to life

what it is you think
about men and if
that is something
with human rights
to happiness
and self-actualization

Stop abusive projections

Herald instead
seers, caretakers
dancers, musicians
tinkerers, thinkerers

When you look at a man
wonder what it is he likes to do
and would like to be if all were well

Assume it’s gonna be:
dwell on it

~ Lady
