...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 )

Rules of Retention

Rules of Retention

Knot the not with knowing reason,
solve the sum of some in parts.

Just as season follows season,
after bleeding healing starts.

New strange you’s are calling upward,
to sing song of purer sound.

The old what was got no reward,
ancient ways need look around.

Walk the walk of others walking,
stop and listen to the talk.

Truth such slippery undertaking,
never fits outline of chalk.
