So here, dervish whirling, this entity, I am...

..on floor in front of fireplace, penning this in insulated freedom. Massive power failure throughout area occurred about 18 hours ago. Beyond these walls it's ice-stilled darkness, broken only with sirens announcing cavalry and crackling from distressed trees.

After patronizing dark but open friendly neighborhood grocer, I'm close to one of hundred's in roll light, but United States of America secure. Power company workers are blocks away now. I see flickering of distant lights, unnoticed before not there .

Candles and I are lit. Grolsch, Heineken and V8, along with items from freezer, are chilling out on deck. Wine and Remy are fine. Cell service has been sporatic at best and phone is now decharged, but can't really complain about that.

Listening to, at some expense, a now battery-powered CD mix: Herbie Hancock's version of- "Sister Moon," featuring Sting...Stones'- "Fancy Man Blues," off: 'Rarities'...Jimi's- "Little Wing"..A Charlie Parker original, take 3 of- "Bird Gets The Worm."...Bob Marley's- "Jammin"...

So here, dervish whirling, this entity, I am...

..Feeling lucky


below the subliminal
deep within manipulation
that's where tr^th resides

remember when the grolsch caps
used to be porcelain, and removable?
and as we toked those stones, we would set those things on fire,
fingers thanked our brains, and so we'd sing...


thank you for the in-sight!

Lucie, Hiba, Lans/ "Icy"
Lucie- Yes, VSOP, along with fireplace, provided warmth. That's story I'm sticking to. Thanks.

Hiba- Thank you. As for a 'serial,' too many lines would have to be blacked out.

Lans- Grolsch remains available w/clamp-tops..Your recollection made me smile...

Thanks again,

A very poetic arrangement of words and word play,
an enjoyable read, you pulled me into your night though it was dark, it was cozy and warm, romantic and funny.

LMJ/ Alighted
LaShea- Your stopping by is much appreciated.

It's amazing how we turn a corner, arm raising seemingly on own, flicking on light switch. Even more amazing is how/why we do it after power is gone.

We take much for granted in this country.

Thanks again,
Robert William, aka: Bobby7L
