...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 )

between sleep and dawn


Status Report 130

Between sleep and dawn
water not yet boiling
surface reflecting stove light above
silhouetting a dozen dead insects
lining translucent cover
their shadowed shapes dancing
on heat quickened surface
before disappearing in boiling bubble
and dark bloom of caffeine.

I tell Lady
who says “Ahhhhhh, protein.”

– Smith. 11.29.2015
