I sit in the back
I sit in the dark
Not nursing my Jameson's...
Hey, it's old enough to know better
Every bottle was born to die...

Carmelita was the kind of a woman
That should come with a Surgeon General's
Warning stenciled on her chest...
"This product may be hazardous to large men
With easy hearts... Use with care..."
When she limped into my life I had been without a woman for a year and a half... Before that I had been with two women since I was nineteen [well, officially; there were a couple off the books]...
I have always been the kind of man that needs someone to fill in the cracks that I can't fill in myself, so it had been a hard year and a half and I was ready, willing and thought myself able to handle one more run thru the desert with a new mare....
Apparently, I was wrong... I said that all I wanted was one night and to move on, but after it happened, she was all I could think about... As I would ride at night, outside of the town, I almost couldn't see the path from the pictures of her body filling my mind...
She wasn't mine to have, but I didn't know that when I gave her my heart... I have stolen wives before, and for a jealous man like me, The Gods seem to have a way of getting even....
Please, Lord, hear me now.... I just want to break even; I just want to break......

Even....

Small flashes of life
interspersed between long periods of
just breathing make up our days...
As time goes on, as we grow older and older,
the flashes move together in our memories
like one long tapestry, all as one piece...
We learn, we prepare, we nourish ourselves
for and from these flashes...

Everything else is just breathing...

He said,
Looks like rain...


The rain came and has changed

Nothing...

I must still face that
which threatens to
take it all away...

They say that time
is the healer but
I am out of time...

As I face him in the dusty street
Evrything we have built
Depends on my right hand...
I feel the rain on my face as
I see his eyes change...
I see the flash of his fire as
I hear the sound of my gun...

Nearer my God to Thee...

Rev Buckman

His bare feet just stepping out of the ocean beside hers. His shine and blue heart way. "...magic beaches with nagic names. Or the angle of the light on the water... Or the sun and moon in our eyes. Or the shimmering clouds. Who knows? We can't change the sky now, can we. Soooo... Bring your ear closer. There's more of the story to tell..." "Yes," she says a lifetime ago and falls asleep at the railroad station. "...gypsies and tinkermen and acrobats..." he's saying.

Short of senility I might add!!!
Down by the water boats go by as dark
falls
upon the peaceful cove. There two lovers
go unnoticed as they wile away the setting.
In the
cool night air stars come out first one then
the other conserting to melody a lovely
picture. As the music sounds the curtain
rises on
"From Here To Eternity" with Deborah and Burt.
Suddenly a young Sinatra, appears and I realize
I am
sitting in the director's chair unto which I bring
together a beautiful panorama, whereto I direct
the script. In this dream I then liberally
create the reality that others may dream
to their ethnic desire--save all sleep through
a fancilul scene, and miss their bliss.
And as Solomon said, "That is thou porti0n under
the sun."

Buchman....rhetorical again, should I go up or down, East or West,
or more pragmatic right or left? Which way is your bent?
You know scientific evidence has like DNA proved that
we are borne one way or the other. Now my question is which is right or which is wrong. Or, is all things RIGHT?

Listen to me carefully... I won't play this tune, little one.... I have done this before with those many times bigger than you and I am tired, can you hear me?
I dance with Ailinn or I don't dance at all... Thanks for your writing, but don't ask me anything more... Do you hear me, Little One? HB

Let's move on....

I was sitting on the mattress
On the floor at 3 AM...
The thought that I might
Never be able to write again
Came to me...
Then she got up and walked naked
To the bathroom...
Sitting on the toilet she was shy and
Made a joke
I said, LeeLee
It's all around us...

She said, Ici?

I look at a picture of Jesse
From the month before he died, 1992...
Black acoustic guitar on his lap
Mild irritation at the camera
On his face...
Eighteen, long blond hair and the looks
Of his mother...
My temperament and my disabilities
Were what I gave...

Oh, the days throwing the football and
The nights at Yankee Stadium...
God, give me pictures of that to have and remember...

When they are five
You can help them cross the road...
By eighteen they have to do it
On their own...

Walk on, young man, walk on...

Daddy

I love you still today...

It's hot in New York in August and
I wonder how it is in Oregon...
Next month we've been married
33 years,
Happy Anniversary, HoneyPie...
No, I still don't want a divorce,
I promised you for life
Even if I haven't seen your face for
Ten years...

I'm thinking that you still
Blame me for Jesse
I know that you blame me for Barb
If you ever get a minute
Maybe you could let me know if you're still alive...

I love you still today...

I loved my family
And I loved the Lord
The way I was always taught
I loved to work and
I loved the sweat and
I loved what hard work brought...

But I've lost it all now and I know
That though the road's been long
All the time I've been living
I must have done something wrong...

I had a boy and I had a girl
They don't mean much anymore
One went off and left one day
One went off to fight the war
The times we had were good I guess
But past times are never good
When you're lost inside yourself
And your heart just feels like wood...

But I've lost it all now and I know
That though the road's been long
All that time that I've been living
I must have done something wrong...

As I rode the horse thru the woods,
the words of tonight came back to me....
Fernando said, Do you even know what you're doing?
I said, Do I ever, My brother?
I just do what I do and then it happens...
I stumble around in the forest with a match and
Eventually I find what I am looking for...

The smell of jasmine came thru the doors....
The smell of Carmelita came right behind it and
My reverie with Fernando was over....

So, Rudy told me as I was putting my chaps on and getting ready to go into the ring with the bitch mare: It took me until I was 53 to get in touch with my own insanity..... I told him then that I was gonna steal that line, and now I have,,,,
