"Good Morning, World!"

Month: January, 2018

Childhood Playmates

M(eye) parents gott married

58 years ago

& have left me

A Kingdom

Buy The Sea

“Oh My Good!”

Eye live in the land

Of beautiful women

& perfect housekeeping —

Women who clean

In their bathrobes

And pajamas

& don’t cry

Over tea


Watch This

I’m back to watching silver

On the water

In the sky

I’m back to watching


On the charts

And going high

Moe’s Birthday

Once in a NYC loft

On The Upper East Side

Hosted by Alan Frank

Eye doused My Self

With cologne bought

For Me by Guy Tozzoli

— Alan couldn’t breathe

And Eye never told Guy



Reflection #2

Eye was born

In The City

That Never Sleeps


In the morning

On Canadian Tax Day

A Doctor’s Patients Are As Good As His Reflection

I’m cooking up

A witch’s brew

Of Fortitude



And Farce —

So far I’ve got

T – bone steak bones


I’ll add thinly sliced onion

To the stock and

HP Sauce to taste —

But nobody’s toes

Today And All Days

Eye am decorated

With My Children’s Art

Sublime in My Silver and Gold

And Beads

Of Human Design

Mood Rings

Eye right

That The World is Fine:

It’s The Sun Spots

We live under

A Child Is The Creation of The Mind

Eye have My Son

@ 5

@ 30

And My Daughter

@ 23

Confession #1

Eye photographed each

Rocky Mountain pass we drove

But not one Grand Kid
