Diamonds For Ladies n Pearls For Whores; A Woman's Ode to Falling In Love

In a Dream

Takes Courage…

Love, illusive as pain itself…
Pearls are for ladies, diamonds for the whores who wear them…
Never fear yesterday. It’s today that troubles you…

“I love You."

…Laughing…
Door shuts…

Mean streets.

Quiet to creatures crawling…
She will win it back…
Never fear yesterday.
Sleep now. Tomorrow is another day.

Aim, Shoot...Score!

And you thought you reached the finish line?…
I made it, and then destroyed it…

As they turn away.
No one can look and see where we are...…And so we are…

Rise, then fall.
The news doesn’t change much…
“Have you considered evolution lately?”…

Lied too, beaten, burnt, raped, plunge, breathing…
“What were you thinking?”
“Never mind”…
Rise to your feet.

See him now that he’s left?…
"Oh my God." That was wonderful!

…Laughing…
Door shuts…

The road…twists and turns, rises and falls again...

Until we fall off and find ourselves on the road…

Door Shuts...Laughing

The Good Book Says....

...“Do it, or I will shoot you."
Stormy, crash, bullets flying..
"I love you anyway"…

Cough, hack, bleed some more.

Flyovers have no effect, so you say…
“Where did you go?”…

…..Laughing…
Door shuts…

When I think of you, I cannot sleep…

Laughing…
Door shuts again…

The mind does not mind.
You are having a good time.
The mind is just the mind…

When I Come Back...

...I am taking the first train out.
Let me help you out here.

“Ouch!”
“That is my heart in your hand.”…

Here’s to all the lovers...

…Laughing…
Door shuts.

“What?” …

If these were my words, I would not have written them quite like so.…
Impossible means probable.

No means yes.

War is not for wimps.

I want to see the President on the field of battle.
My six year old could kick his ass…

Never mind what I said…
Are you going to trust your eyes?
Again?…

Swim in confusion...
Land in love...

Illusive. Pearls or Diamonds?

Face of a daisy, tongue of a dagger, teeth of a viper…

Never mind what you think, what you saw…

Up late, room filled with smoke…
“Someone open a window please.”…
Ghosts can’t hurt you now.
“Ya right!”…

“Man, what kind of a trip you on?”
"Wherever this road leads me."

Now that is funny!

…Laughing…
Door shuts…

“Shit, now what?”
Meanwhile it's morning.
"What will you do?"

Not laughing…

That boy better get a job today...
Door shuts…

“You call that music?”
“Now, this is music!”
Gun blasts.~

Take the next train out and come back in again…
“What has he done to you?”
He is the devil....
