HELLO, HOPE

At this stage in my existence, having lead several different kinds of lives with people here and abroad, I want to make more beautiful memories,especially with the people I love.
Hate, racism, and cruelty,emotions that seem to be a thread in many of the social media comments leave me with a feeling of abandonment.
Yes,I know what is going on in the world.
No, I am not sticking my head into the sand.
But, I want to surround myself with hope and the anticipation of experiencing the wonderful, positive, loving aspects of my fellow human beings.

Whorehouse Piano

Poesy plus Polemics

piano “Abstract Piano” by Debra Hurd

play that red silk music

lascivious fingered

glissandos that beckon

the credulous virgin

adapted to easy arousal

of mindlessly eager and

readily tumescent ears

pay no heed to the daylight

that harsh piece of clockwork

immodest with truth

it’s the nighttime holds forth

with sly prurient promises

nubile ideas dripping ecstasy

craved by the plainest and

most inexperienced minds

all it takes is to drop off

one’s ballot in care of

the crone at the door

cheap enough for a few

thrilling hours in arms

of a lover-for-hire

accompanied by that

dissembling piano-man

playing his sheer

insincere serenade

Thanks to the English Professor for the irresistible cue.
