At day’s end, gently we are drawn

into tides of pain and passionate desire,

our voices pretending to be silence,

like insistences of a moonlit mind,

there, looking out the window,

as I cooked my ass off

while drinking with Li Po

at the Yacht Club, Sunday night, 2 am,

before liberty calls and memory prevails

and we go slowly driving away ....

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim

HaaHaaHaa

I've done these "anthologies". Haven't done one for a long time.

Thanks for the laugh!

Love the unexpected but wonderfully incongruous linking of images and thoughts here:

 

... I cooked my ass off

while drinking with Li Po

at the Yacht Club, Sunday night, 2 am,

 

Enjoyed this. :D

 

Thank you.

You've given me cause to smile, this morning and I needed it. Isn't it great we've given you such excellent material to work with? Very nice! Thanks.

I'm grand, Tony, thanks ... but it was a big one! We were 5-600 km away from the epicentre but the room was rocking. The thing I hate about these things is that there is nothing you can do except wait for it to stop. This one went one for 3-4 minutes. I've lived through about 15 of these things and it never gets better. I still remember the Kobe quake back in 1995 when a pal of mine and his family ducked under the kitchen table and everything on the shelves came cascading down and the building shook like a rat in a terrier's mouth. The good thing is that the Japanese build for quakes with reinforcing rods within the concrete at 5 cm intervals, previously 10, and great big rubber balls in the basement. Generally, the modern buildings survive but the old houses come crashing down. Because there is nothing you can do apart from waiting things out it can be as scary as hell.

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim
