In moments of self-absorption one can hear voices in his head speaking good of himSELF.

How to Construct a Sentence…

Survey the mind

Before laying a foundation in thought.

Then layer with more observation

To avoid walls that are blind

Or a dull coat.

Let penning down be the roofing

And rewriting – the furnishing.

Down The Rhubarb Straw II

When a man reminisces about old lovers,
His instincts are revived.
He considers his current prospects
And rejoices in old ‘conquests’.
There’s a beautiful nostalgia about it all
And he goes on loving even when he has ceased lusting.

Now assuming as I am…
That when a woman calls on her memory
And remembers old encounters,
She may initially delight in the triggers of that very remembrance –
Often some amusing idiosyncrasies or affectations;
But then she is forced to remember his essence –
How he had her, and how he destroyed her beautiful illusion…
So she ceases to love when her youth withers.
