Fading (post of an earlier poem I still like)

Celibate for longer than
Rip Van Winkle's nap,
Sara dreams in technicolor,
breasts firm like freshly scooped ice-cream,
and go-on-forever legs wrapped around
some sexy man's waist.
Sean Connery maybe, or
Denzel Washington.
She wonders if sex works like
heartbeats in animals, if
she used up her quota in her
too many men too little time
communal days.
She remembers when her face
blazed a fire in men's hearts.
Between their legs, too.
Now she's forgotten what an orgasm
feels like with a man still inside her.
She climbs out of bed, puts on her
Give Bush a Blow Job PLEASE sweatshirt,
joins other graying ex-hippie
women who wander the streets
and coffee shops after midnight,
minds still alert and longing,
bodies fading like ghosts
between every streetlight.

Still in a crash

When I get energy I'll read more blog posts and also post about my Miami visit. Just can't right now. Am limp.

This and that....

I'm in another crash. Yes, my regular readers have heard it before. Throat raw. Muscles limp. I have the good fortune to have an appointment, finally, down at Nancy Klimas' clinic at the U. of Miami Medical School this Thursday after 6 months on the waiting list. Since it's at the Medical School and not at her new pay clinic Medicare will cover an hour and a half evaluation and any follow up visit.

I know there's no magic bullet, but maybe hope that something might help is good medicine right now.

I've not had the energy to respond on blogs in a while now. I'll get back to it when I can.

And, on the subject I wrote about sites such as facebook or myspace taking readers away from the blogs, I just got my stats for this site and my website recently. Lowest numbers on both since I started them years ago. No, I've not been posting as often, but I went through periods in the past when I didn't, either, and the numbers stayed up there. I use this blog just for meanderings such as this now or fun things I'd like to keep as long as stays open.
