Kid

You called me kid

Though young enough

To be my progeny

There was surprise

In your eyes

Not intending to

Utter those frequencies

An expression of affection?

I thought I had imagined it

The taste was cardamom

For the first time

Unsure how to savor the flavor

Like when your throat

Was blanketed by your favorite

Down comforter

As you read my sign

From the Chinese calendar

As if you had penned it yourself

Practicing for the recital

Though we don’t believe

In that sort of thing

I do believe in

Friends held with fondness

Your spirit is a

Heart whisperer

And it’s mine

That calms

When it sees your

Bright blondness

Lost My Voice (Song Lyrics)

This would sound better

If I were a singer

Forgive me cause I lost my voice

 

This would be more interesting

If you could hear me sing

Forgive me cause I can’t find my voice

 

It left somewhere between

The great arch of St. Loui

And the colors of Albuquerque

I lost it and it’s nowhere to be seen

It’s nowhere to be seen

 

I was going to New Mexico

To take in the scene

Of the happenings

During Flamenco Week

I lost it, it’s nowhere to be seen

Nowhere to be seen

 

I was thinking of a dancer

Expert at making her castanets roar

Accompanied by the guitar player

With a life-worn golpeador

It vanished, I haven’t seen it anymore

I haven’t seen it anymore

 

This would sound better

If I were a singer

Forgive me cause I lost my voice

 

This would be more interesting

If you could hear me sing

Forgive me till I find my voice
