A nod to Mr. Steve for the catchy phrase.


They hold hands—
don’t even try to hide
a kiss indecent
by suburban sidewalk standards
in 1969.

Dry wood stacked high
on their relationship
the inferno will cool to embers
in a few short weeks,

in smelly telliness
a bad taste
no lifetime souvenirs.


"Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame."      W.B. Yeats

 *hehe*  Nice spark.
"I stood unwound beneath the skies
And clouds unbound by laws
The cryin' rain like a trumpet sang
And asked for no applause" Bob Dylan

Hiya WF, this *snaps*...I enjoyed it very much.
