feverish grin
poor appetite
can’t sleep, toss and turn all night
breathing funny
belly aching
heart racing…
good God Almighty,
the love bug done struck again!


Poets and Bandits

I recall past loves,
poets who spoke tenderly
bandits who stole my heart!


Time, Technology & Love

the modern couple
share music via iphone/pods.
it was better in the ole days
when lovers held hands!
