Sunsets

I've never had the stillness for sunsets.
My lovers watch alone

while I streak gold
across my palm,

cover an eye,
and move on.

Just finished reading your fabulous poems in Gemini/Scorpio/
Capricorn, MZ.

Some of my favorites:

Poet/Mother, Dinner Wear, Store Bought Peach, Pinwheel Dress, Miss D'Meanor...

Having already been exposed to some of your work over the years, I can so hear your distinct voice...sharp, witty, observant...executing mainstream life...

You offer life to the mundane.

Thoroughly enjoyed the book!

I love where you took this, and it's so you, Ms. Perpetual Motion.

love this...tomorrow I'm going to post something that you might get it'll be on my Stuff and Somewhat Art Blog, unless of course it gives me trouble...

Some of us attend the events, and some of us are artists, perhaps a form of piracy indeed. Vivid, brilliant, blinding!

Well penned. Just perfect.
