Black of Night: You Hypnotize Me

A crystal ball spies in and refracts images to see.
Holding a scene outside of me.
Remembering and forgetting and guessing once more.
A future, a past, a present and no score.

A stair way to a surreal heaven
Expecting no faults, no regrets
A grand decent onto a spot lit stage
Seats of batting lashes, applauds and real attempts.

I see my Self stepping lightly in sequined slippers.
Though this seems to be only in dream sequence.
I step with intent, and knowing and yet still
Surprised about where and when I have slept.

I used to have a stalker named Ben.
He staggered by with his cowboy wink.
He was there as I came and went.
Where has been?..waiting Stinks!

Fashion sense: Barbara Bui, you hypnotize me.

I love that "Ben" inscription.


Beach: That is a vintage silver and turquoise cowboy belt buckle that I some how, subliminally inherited.

I am due to put to good wearable use.

Sweet Teri, thank you so much for your loving comments about Sheldon, I especially love the idea of him leaving us and going on to grace.
