Gotta Light?

The flame lights up the shadow thrown by his rakishly cocked fedora as he lights his cigarette with the stylishly dated trench coat firmly belted, the collar up in back “Here’s looking at you schweetheart” He says in a very bad Bogey imitation And I smile, a little giving an eyeroll and shaking my head … Continue reading Gotta Light?

The way it is

2017 has been a difficult, amazing and strange year for most of us, full of losses and finds, sadness and surprise, horror and in my case, a tonne of happiness.   For me personally, it was especially difficult and also delightful.  After 18 years of marriage and two amazing children, my marriage fell apart despite of … Continue reading The way it is

Underneath the Hangin’ Tree

I knew we were forever on that late January night when you carved our initials into the stained bark, in the dark at the base of the Hangin’ Tree.

Just. Keep. Breathing.

Just keep breathing I'm trying but Wheezing whining crying alone In the dark The elephant It's on my chest And it's giving delighted gifts; (huge butt wiggles) While I still try furiously futilely fight The constant war Between the lines Belief and faith Someone else's Views of what is Right or always wrong.
