They All Have Lives

Vintage Words


I keep asking the question while no one is in the room: "Am I unable to organize a future and have a life like they have?" or "How long am I going to blame pain and old wounds for not going public again with the poetry readings?"


I love publishing, a lot of work, but fun as fun ever was. Mention poetry to a stranger and first they look at you funny - then they think you're tugging on something precious. The only poet they know is Sylvia Plath so they think: "Who do you think you are, Sylvia Plath?"


Tired is the answer, old is the word sliding off the edge of the melting timepiece. Descending a stair nude is ridiculous and can lead to goosebumps. All is most and forever and a minute. I will grow closer to the tomb day by day and leave that much moving around to the young.

Just looked

Don't say I'm staring.

I just wanted to see

What you wanted to say.

Do it.


If I told you I said

" Just Do It "

You probably wouldn't believe me.

But I did

Them with the Big Ears

Duchamp  didn't care why

Duchamp  didn't care why should you what the body can't move the mind moves mountains. The joys of getting older is the time afforded to think and be dismissed.  There's a certain freedom in that! 

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

Looking Forward

making small plans will be the way to go. And yes, these are great years, the slide into home plate. Watched the worst game in NFL history: score 20 to 10 more turnovers than a bakery - 1st game I watched beginning to end in about sixteen years. Turning over a new leaf with new interests was chosen and encountered injuries and Roma out injured claviclal (2nd time). They almost ran out of stretchers. Can't wait until Thursday night Ftbll. :D slc
