THE KISS

I placed my lips to hers
Like I’d seen on TV…
Surprised and delighted
As her tongue met mine
And I finally knew
What kisses were about
How do you know how
To do something if you’ve
Never seen it done right?
In a nation afraid to be
Honest about love and sex
I know that honesty is best

Reinvention

Comes a time
To many
Not all
That which
You have always done
Seems all wrong

Entanglements
Relationships
Possessions
Bring no joy

Looking inside yourself
Brings pain
A painful recognition
You have not been
True to you
And what is meaningful

We are not the same
All have different likes
Desires
Fulfillments

But all races, creeds, nationalities
Have one basic need in common
To love and be loved
Finding either lacking
There’s only one answer
Reinvention

WRITING REBELS.jpg

The whole world is gasping

I’d hoped I was born
After fascism went
To its grave…
But Franco persisted
And though we resisted
It’s now taken the
Once free U.S.A.
Tell me please…
It was just a nightmare
But, no….
The whole world is gasping
