- Kino MacGregor , 'The Quiet Strength of a Woman's Body'
This so many times I'm told.
But what is gold?
What is its cost?
Can it be measured
if all is lost?
Is it warm?
Is it cold?
Can it comfort
when we grow old?
Can it buy you love?
Can it bring you joy?
Is gold a commodity
that you heart can enjoy?
Can it say I love you
and dry a sorrows tear.
Will it grow more tender
year after year?
The gold that really glitters
is the gold that I see.
When you have entered a room
and your eyes see me.
Your eyes have the glitter
and oh how they do glow.
The wealth is in
the gold I see.
Found in the love
Between you and me.

With all their might
They ground their heel
Into the ground
Clockwise and counter-clockwise
Pushed it crushed it twice and thrice four times and more
The spot where it would

...but more like...
...then there's a clipper out there with your name on it. Remember, only the guys in the razor-blade/shaving-cream/electric-trimmer/after-shave commercials get the girls. Them and the guys in the Axe and old Denim perfume ads.

Staring into the black sea not needing to say anything
Or saying too much but I know you won't avoid me next time
For being too talkative hormonal sensitive so weird
The obstacle course of adjectives they throw at you
Out there, a world of eggshells that breaks you
But I can stomp around you in well-worn shoes
Feet firm and kicking raising dust and grass
How I am how I feel how I always was jungle child
Making mistakes don't know what to do
Emotional faulty scared sometimes-cute
Wouldn't dare unmask in front of others
But my friend wants nothing from me
Will still want to watch the black water white froth with me tomorrow

When I first saw Shahrukh Khan at a concert in Muscat, Oman, in 1994, I never realised that that 20-something not-particularly-good-looking newbie would grow up to become an international sensation. Shahrukh Khan today...
...has crazy White fans!

Yes, I am a winner. And don't you - or I - dare forget it.

The last family event, an out-of-state wedding, had wrapped up. My brother and his family had left for the airport with my mother early in the morning while I had been asleep in their hotel room. My flight back to Tulsa was later in the day. I opened my eyes, and I heard silence. It was back.
No up no down
Where you realise that you're alone
While brushing your teeth at night
In the middle of the drive to work
After the partiers have gone home
And it's quiet again
Filling your ears with an expanding nothing
In that silent agitation that grows in your belly
Wailing because it is never defeated
Hello, we meet again.
