Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )

Updike

Young Rabbit Angstrom
felled by casual fucking
and former glory.

Finally finished “Rabbit at Rest.” Now reading another by Updike – “S.”.

Recorded this yesterday, a short talking urban blues, so to speak . . . click here to hear One Life to Live, Peter Ball music, mix and recording, me word and voice, or as Peter put it: Steven B. Smith – Vocals and Lyrics with The Planetary Extinction Orchestra.

One Life to Live (the song)

Am I running from the coming
of the fountain of afford?
Is the water getting wider
before we get to ford?

How’s the hide of hoarder
as he hoists his heavy load?
When the heck will this be paid for
as we stumble down the road?

I say sock it to em, sex it up,
add some color, bunny hop,
make it funky, do it down,
even clunky you can clown
defrown that upsidedown.

These are the questions lacking
in the running of day,
the personal people problems
per their portion of the pay.

We don’t have a lot of options
in the play or way of lay,
but then that’s not our business,
or at least that’s what they say.

I say sock it to em, sex it up,
add some color, bunny hop,
make it funky, do it down,
even clunky you can clown
defrown that upsidedown.
