juxtaposition

sun-faded red brick

white paint peeling from the door

a shiny brass key

 

sultry summer night,

I lean into your doorway-

Nina sings the blues.

silk robe slips from shoulders,

pooling softly on the floor

    Damn. So damn sexy. And warm. And loving.
    All you have mentioned is visual and yet I swear I can smell that summer night.

        I’m not so sure you do. I was just thinking last night as I was getting ready to dive deeper into your work that I have missed (but nodded off instead 🙁) that it always seems to be there in what you do. Like the character who is never mentioned but whose presence is nevertheless always felt.

          And … Phill would say to me especially at first that I try to be too clever and I tell too much. Often. Haha. He’d say. “Don’t say you miss him. What makes you miss him? What do you see that says he’s not here?” 🙂 that was prob 10 years ago he told me that, and I think about it a lot when I try to play with words.
