...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 )

is but was on way to when


detail from Pharmacy Duchamp, 1980s

Supple Simon Sez

Lot of shallow in my deep
many a crocodile do I weep

Tons of sheep within my sham
too much ain’t in my am

I fake sincere with best of them
obscure my grim in rictus grin

Bite my lip to hide sharp tooth
pretend paid news not corporate abuse

I’m all smiles, and good, and dear
there is no nasty lurking near

It’s Santa and soon and truth fairy fly
as the Great Pumpkin rises to sky

Yet in spite, and maybe because
we have kindness in our 2-people pod

There’s she and me and the be between
with Mr. Rogers our hero king

Our corner is cleaned and lighted well
making space for more gentle swell

Ain’t no taint of right and wrong
but should and could for lighter song

We shed old groan for gentler tone
our mutual magic muting moan

So clean your corner, make amend,
have chairs about to sit a friend

Be safe haven in stormy lie
calm of port for weary why

For as supple Simon sez
this is but was on way to when
