Your all American all monkey political correspondent stands before you, maniacally clashing cymbals while jiggling ample nethers to the seductive primal rhythm of last night’s political heehaw, her hard little heart enthralled after learning the totally hot Texas Rangers (starring RobertRead full post »

for me, I mourn (nine eleven)

for me, I mourn one exquisite day of sudden shocking death taking place on my doorstep, on America's golden doorstep.

I mourn the broken hearts of my brothers and sisters.  I remember how they taped images of friends and family, placed notes and poems, held lit candles.  all while covered… Read full post »

Your never humble monkey sees all, sees through walls, through and through.  Be assured, she knows in her evil little heart the RNC is busy setting up the perfect storm, a scenario to position a very oddly dull bot as THE foil to the Dynamic and Evil Populist Foreign Born OsamaObama.… Read full post »

foretold unspoken

promises like unbiden lies

for destiny

for the taking 


one hungry glance held lifetimes

yearning pulsing

she would feel the crush

of her breasts between their bodies 

so tightly he would hold her

he knew how his skin b… Read full post »

impenetrable sky cracking like an egg

her shadow palisade in sly electrical undertones

snaking goddess breast of wine

whose wild wind of charcoal velvet

and warm fragrant breath

glance the flesh

with hot gentle tears

long before long before

The Red Lotus

the color of joy surrounds

an ancient draped in lotus molten silk

she hears bells ring

times rushes forward then stops


in a small war of words

of actions

of living

there is rapture in a painful world

reborn embracing dawn… Read full post »

picture one horse

squat(so to speak)

lowly said

a mere draft


with great cow eyes and flaxen mane

appearing quite overblown

august eve of a dream

evening sounds

of moistest breath 

gliding from hot tongues

in descending light

toes trace a cool crevice

the grain of polished floor 

beneath hardened smooth skin 

her sigh punctuates 


staring beyond a shimmering wall of glass

she basks in chilled heat

while fleshy… Read full post »

a dream love




ah gentle

in muted tones

mottled blue

one thin shelled egg

cradled in pillowed palms


he follows with lips

tracing soft patterns

caressing dry

the back of my neck

drizzling fine sand

heavy and… Read full post »




I think I mentioned that I’ve been invited by my son and his family to vacation for a week in August, at a dude ranch in Colorado.  Of course I said oh YES! even though I’m a 64 year old woman with not narrow hips, and a negligible… Read full post »

missing Miss Julia Child


Every so often I go on a search for the elusive Gale Gand cookie sheet.  They are the best I've ever used but they came and went in the blink of an eye.  So today while one of my searches I stumbled across a Baking With Julia episode with Gale/… Read full post »

I drove up to Boston on Sunday with my half of the elder family gene treasury, my exhusband Johnny and his wife Mimi (my bestest best friends) (it's not complicated) (I liked him enough to marry him).   

The boy was in pain on Sunday because Saturday his menfolk meaning dad,… Read full post »

standing in line


Sept 12, 2001

We were waiting in line to give blood.  Early that morning the Red Cross had requested donors.  By the time we arrived around 10 AM, there were more than a thousand people waiting, snaked around a tiny strip mall on Long Island.

I can guess that we… Read full post »

I can't begin to talk about my emotional state right now:  but I can tell you I'm exhausted.  Until I worked it out, I wasn't sure how I was going to see everybody because my grandson Cameron is up in Boston in the hospital and as of last night, my granddaughter… Read full post »

I ask but he will not answer

After a while yesterday, it seemed to me everything was conspiring to make my drive up to Boston difficult and slow.  

First a late start, while packing food, a glass lined thermos exploded all over the countertop, spraying broken glass and sweetened coffee everywhere!

Then while driving with no… Read full post »

(Today I'm totally shot plus it looks like my brand new cell phone committed suicide from all the texting.  It's locked me out.  This is not the time for screwball electronics to have nervous breakdowns, so after completing this blog I'm on my way to get this thing looked at.)

Rec'd a txt early this AM:  the boy is miserable, in pain, drug addled and moody.  Could I locate a muffin and some movies for him? 

He is not eating. 

After I've showered I'm off on a muffin safari to hunt down the perfect banana nut muffin, a food he mentioned… Read full post »
