STRANGER

there she was, my distraction
my reason to forget everything around me
she was nothing more than a mere stranger

how could someone so unfamiliar
make me this oblivious
reckless, elusive

AUDITION

there is a charm in the forbidden 
that makes it unspeakably desirable

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind audition


fleshing out the music, I saw a vision of a pole dancer
beautiful - creative - ok hot (easy on the eyes)
and then I imagined married men sitting in the dark
with their drinks, looking up
gawking at her ... fantasizing
their wives at home, watching TV
wondering where he is

I wondered what it would be like to film that
in the moment and making it look real
searching YouTube under "pole dancer" and finding Nina, then the pics and
it all fell together after that

it was in that juxtaposition ...
their crusty creepiness against her prolific provocation
is what came out of the music
and into pictures


it's fun

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
