AUSTIN, TEXAS...1979-1980

Prose, poetry, and thoughts enscribed while chasing the American Dream...which, for this American, is always a woman.

Americans are forever searching for love in forms it never takes, in places it can never be. It must have something to do with the vanished frontier. ~~Kurt Vonnegut

The best time to look for love is when you already have it. Loving and being loved gives one an aura of confidence that is much harder to exude when you're lonely and desperate. But when I have love, I'm too busy reveling in it; rolling in love like an endless field of clover, to think about the future.

Verus amicus est tamquam alter idem.

A true friend is like another me.

And this, of course, was inspired by the most wonderful woman I have had the pleasure of knowing. She knows who she is:

A Love Poem

When I'm near you, my love,
All the birds go 'chirp'
I want to eat you, my love,
Until I must burp.
