today's post is a gift to heather barnett and joe minner, married yesterday in livermore california. (you can see pictures of heather at www.pbase.com/wwp/heather i've known her since she was knee-high to a grasshopper). many good wishes to both of them.
i put this anthology together some years ago. whatever we wish to create, we must love to see, read, experience, celebrate. this was my way. and i pass it on to the new couple. www.pbase.com/wwp/eros
Your eyes are glowing
With the red wine:
How shall I extinguish their glow?
- Only by drinking from them both
One and one after the other -
Then you fill them up again
With the yellow wine
Which I love the most.
