...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 )

Don’t know where I’m going

Yes we have no mañanas

You pay my life with your’s

Got my truth

Status Report 310

It’s too quiet
I know they’re out there somewhere
waiting

Pre-dawn coffee
pre-dawn bagel
pre-dawn toke

Used to live
at Drug & Wine
til wine went south

Dog sez
my food gone
have yours?

safari September so far . . .

~ ~ ~

Face to sun
eyes closed
listening

Night train
Harlem nocturne
heart and soul

Janus blind
looking both ways
into nothing

Eyes closed
face to sun
recharging

~ ~ ~

Thin ice
load on back
slip slide crack

As seasons go
I be gone
past participant

~ ~ ~

Sun sets
day dims
road goes on

~ ~ ~

24 hours
sitting 5 yr-old niece
10 pounds of sugar in a caffeinated cup

~ ~ ~

Standing in shadow
looking at the sun
can’t be done

~ ~ ~

The anti-vaxxers are saying
Their right to be stupid
Is more important than my right to life

~ ~ ~

You got your version
I got mine
one of us be lyin’

To operate in this insane world
you best be a little crazy
and a lot crooked

Between the current
and the coming
more lies

It’s sex and gasoline
black caffeine
and pedal to mental gone

~ ~ ~

Some long for yesterday
others worship tomorrow
today sorrow

Yet today’s tomorrow’s yesterday

From east creeps beast
while west rots rest

~ ~ ~

2021.9.1 – Face to sun
2021.9.2 – Thin ice
2021.9.3 – Sun sets
2021.9.6 – 24 hours
2021.9.7 – Standing in shadow
2021.9.8 – The anti-vaxxers are saying
2021.9.9 – You got your version
2021.9.10 – Some long for yesterday
