    yesterday...
    sitting cross-legged
    on my fire escape
    five flights high
    mind contemplating
    eyes fixed intently
    on the pleasure/intensity
    of my next toke...

    when the smoke signals of
    my youthful restlessness spiraled
    up into the city's humid
    midsummer's night

    were you really somewhere
    out there catching a contact
    high...receiving love/vibes
    from my rainbow sky?

    Now, I can't imagine crossing
    the east river without you
    beside me...

    and "falling" with you in
    central park is a must-do...
    us, me & you, on our
    backs making yellow/orange
    angels...looking beautiful
    autumn dead in her eye...

    I need to walk long city
    blocks together
    ...covering miles &
    miles of real talk..."yocky-dock"
    & laughing at...every/any/no/thing

    do you know I take you with me
    on the subway...my golden amulet...
    ...my fierce protection...?
    I feel you in every cab ride...
    gratuitously keeping you
    in mind... :wink:

    I sometimes see you peeking
    at me between
    the high rises when I
    look straight up at the
    rays, squinting for a better view...
    ...the playful sun...following
    me step by step...yeah,
    I imagine it's you


    I hear your laughter
    echoing as it must have
    years ago, every time I pass the
    youngbloods hanging
    on the stoops


    when I was 20,
    sitting cross-legged on
    the fire escape five flights
    high...good love was
    ron bacardi, dark,
    a phat joint, & vy playin
    lonnie liston smith..and
    hot sex allll night looong..

    the awesome apple was the birthplace...
    of much more than we knew

    now
    I wonder, if between the
    puffs, jazz cuts and my
    lifelong primal scream....
    you somehow knew you'd be
    the one to shake me from
    my midsummer night's dream

    ...you know, I don't normally get into the details...knowing that it's often better to leave room for imagination (what I love whenever I read poetry, etc.)...and although I was about to expound (cuz you do that to me)...all I will say here is, "thank you, this one is special". :wink:

    starbucks, here I come.

    You evoke words that just come pouring out. This one is not only a beautiful read and a great story, it is a testimony of how rich life can be... more precious than much fine gold.

    The book will be available, when?

    you are one of the best poetic storytellers on the planet... I do declare this is extremely reminiscent of many moons ago in my own life.

    relating strongly, Poetess

    thank you
