In The Phallus Lane
To be in the woods or even the wilderness, one can find many means to survive, myriad ways even. But in the concrete world of apathy and indifference, a penny's worth of compassion is worth a fortune in smiles. We give, not to pay for the smile we receive, but in the heart of Man, it's the right thing to do. "It is better to give than receive". Everyone's heard that, but few practice it.
Not only is your poetry gold Jerry, your heart is as well. You can't just make this up, it has to come from deep within you and your own life's experience.
My glass is raised to you...Salute!
Loving Linny Jean is poetry.
