My latest. And it's free; unless, of course, you want to let me know how you feel about it!

I've been entertained by the coincidences of their names. Although he had left the Nation of Islam, he retained a name crucial to its cosmology: Shabazz which is a contraction of Shah (King) and Baz (Eagle); not an uncommon name in the subcontinent.

I played football for MSU 1965. I earned a Masters degree from U of M. Talk about split loyalties! Each university has a special place in my life and heart.

This is dedicated to a friend, close enough to be called my brother from another mother -- no disrespect to each of our fathers!, who underwent chemotherapy today.

This was tons of fun to write since I love word play.
This is especially true when I "discover" a "new" word.
She never rubbed me the wrong way. Never the way we were wont to lay. It was good to pretend and let her play. On my back, she, the thrust above. A grunting bird, breathy coos to a secret love. Not there between my splayed male legs, But the Sunday mornings, Thursday nights ...

frugal passions

the frugality of her passions
crimped the edges of her sensuality
that abbreviated eventually
her expressed sexuality
or maybe
she just wasn't into me.

It's the same one. I guess it might be the theme? Broken hearts bleed out loud!
