...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 )
 
   
 
 

PEACEFUL

PEACEFUL

Peaceful
as record beckoning
record player’s player
played like Narcissus
bent without end over pool
in relaxed resignation
hand hung in water

Peaceful
let whatever subtext
decides to play
in my throat
just be
not fight
so much

Let the catgut work
its twang

Listen and relax

Listen & wait
for improvement
and space for me to
flute the reed of my intent
with pursed-lip patience
when I’m s’posed
to come in

It will make more space for me

I’m mostly an observer
waiting with flute on my lap
in my own orchestra

~ Lady
