two for marketa



the way


my three years with you 

have taught me

and brought me   insights beyond   


but including   the physical

without a word

of reproach   or even suggestion   


you have created   in me   a subtle shift

from the way of the east   

the way of han shan   reflection and meditation   


which has not brought me peace

to your pragmatic   

eastern-european way   which has      


inner-strength   self-reliance   resilience   

hard work   faith in myself and something greater








blues guitar



dearest marketa


let me lay you

across my lap

strum your strings


finger your frets   

tickle you a tune

would you like that   


how’s your pitch

a sweet high-end   

a deep-moaning bass


do you have a blue note

waiting to bend and wail   

let me pluck you


and we’ll see

what the blues is all about
