AURORA BOREALIS


she was there, sitting right there
in the back seat, then there was the accident
and she was gone - they were gone

I was supposed to be somewhere
I just can't remember where
I can't remember things
anymore

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind aurora borealis


fading faces - in the lights
eyes wide open at 4am
ok, let's do this


mothers & daughters - fathers and sons
having been separated
a return through the lights

spearmint lake - it was there


that I sat under the aurora in aug/92 - no roads to this place
northern ontario, out in the bush, open lake/high up
and this is what came of it
a reminder

like coming home 
to an old friend

sometimes we miss what's IN the picture

because we become preoccupied/distracted
by the frame it's in

NUMBER ONE.


3 things on my ‘life to live’ list of tings
 I'd like to do:

1. I want to learn how to paddleboard
2. I want to go skydiving
3. I want to adopt a child

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind number one


1964

I first fell in love with Elizabeth Dent
in Woodstock Ontario, in Grade 3
beautiful, humble -  hot
total smoke-show

elegant, timeless, even at 8 years old
I kissed her 3 times under her winter hood
out in the woods behind Springbank School (her idea)
in March '65 - it was surreal

shortly after I turned 9
I found a stack of Dad's playboy mags
stashed under his tool bench
in the basement in a box

Mom was snoozing that afternoon
and he was away - traveling salesman/absent father
on the road a lot

I knew nothing and was curious
flipping through the pages - naked girls/wow 
pulling out the centre-fold
and almost fainting

feeling aroused at 9 even
not a clue and just as well
blondes always my preference
ever since

televised beauty pageants
make-up, high heels - lubricated tanned skin
that provocative smile
tailored to tease

boner ... I mean bonus

our preoccupation with beauty is distracting
my own attractions (still) ... conditionally condoned
how it's supposed to look

how it ends up looking

Elizabeth was my number one
still is

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind casual shopper



nothing special here
no hidden messages or underlying folly
ok maybe a little

just coming across a youtube clip
a short segment from the movie "Career Opportunities"
a 1991 John Hughes comedy/drama that fizzled upon landing
attracted to her in that moment
not sure why

OK, maybe because ... OMFG!

thought I'd add music/voices

because it's beautiful to look at
having fun w/the pictures
feel like I'm 15 again

guilty pleasure

MARRY ME


matrimony is the union of fear and fantasy
manifest in merriment

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind marry me


thinking why?
why make it a religious thing
what's the takeaway?

will the natural union 

between man & woman
be more sacred?  blessed? 
whatever; just DON'T make it about that


I will say this ... Indian weddings?
ensconced in faith and still
very cool - and so
here we go, if it's fun?
then why not?

I can do religion
incrementally
