...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 )
 
   
 
 

safari September so far . . .

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
