Night Music: Loan Me A Dime

March 6, 2017

Boz Scaggs and Duane Allman. ¬†Mighty fine music from Muscle Shoals. Take the time to listen; it’s long, but worth every moment.


Poem: Care

March 6, 2017



To enter into

the castle of her mind


— a private place adorned

with the illuminated thought

of past centuries —


was an adventure

she allowed to few.


The gate into

that world of reminiscence


— a veil ornamented

with the beauty and vacancy

of a divine smile —


was kept firmly shut

to all but the hardy.


The key to

that locked-up voice


— a brittle stained glass window

etched and impacted

by the meteors of time —


was inspiration

affection and love.
