Scent of Kief at Sunset

Scent of Kief at Sunset    We meet in the Casbah when I step down the stairs like Zeus descending Olympus. Her sisters are wrapped in burqas. With my glance, they dart like little birds back into their nest. Suddenly the window opens again. Her face peeks out and she beckons me with a tongue click. ...

Black Rose of Penitence

Black Rose of Penitence This is a junior college where I am an instructor for young pianist, flutist, and organist who birth notes with fingers on fire. During their practice sessions, I just melt in my soma zone while they strum my heart with the music of the Gods. The young ladies chatter like Chi...

Yes, celibacy can be the best course as I've found since my divorce. It works for me.

Re: Spanish Chic & Faux Leather

Sounds like your Harrison Ford Effect was in full swing with Holly. An office romance can be fun. I had a young woman have a not so accidental fall into my arms while on a ladder putting up Christmas ornaments at the office. She had been flirting with me for quite some time before. But I was much yo...

Re: Spanish Chic & Faux Leather

Sasha, your story about waitress romance was priceless. I am no doubt old enough to be this woman's father. We had chemistry going on for several months. Now she only works there on Sunday. Of course, I fictionalized a lot of the dialogue here. But a lot was verbatim. I promised her a copy of my boo...

Re: Coffee

Love the metaphor of the snake shedding its skin for the changes from aging. Excellent transition of morning coffee to reflections on a lifetime. Excellent poem on so much more than coffee.

Re: the day the blues got into me

Wonderful take on the blues and where it took you. The British invasion. I wasn't born when the Beatles came on the Ed Sullivan show. But you took me to a time and place I get nostalgic for through video clips. Thank you.
