Motiff - poetry
Have you ever practiced fascination with a big name you know is not a good match for you? Or how about an exciting affiliation that roots itself deep in your memory. . . Here's my amplify take on a big cheese who trapped my eye years ago and invited me to play footsies in a work cafeteria. Even if naught ever complex from this infatuation, he has never left my thoughts.
Roses are red
Of property you close
Yet by hook or by crook I managed
So I guess I'll just wait

San Francisco [Almost a Sonnet]
(The city by the bay of Northern California, near which the Conciliatory Ocean resides; the year is 1967)Mid October seemed like some bounce day,When all the way through the controlled waters, dry as lead, The ferry, like vague gloom that stand the dead,Slipped down the bent coast of Frisco bay, Rounded the Blond Gate,-and San Francisco lay, Before me, that gay city, pink and red, Hippies enclosed Haigh Asbury's down-and-out head,-My home, to be, I found stirring and grey.The waves broken on the wooden-sides; fishermenNearby with long necks, looked and cast again.
