Anyone can make love complicated, that’s easy.  As everyone who’s been around love knows knows a romantic kiss can out burn and outlast a lifetime of monotone sex.  And although its true nobody ever really wants to break a heart or have their heart broken, yet here we lay slain and all alone in this goddam Garden of Eden wondering where all of life’s shit seems to come from.  It appears the only way we can be true to ourselves and still be happy is to lie to everyone else.

It’s time for the running of the words again

It’s Encierro, Pamplona northeast of Madrid

The ancient ones make a run

But usually it’s the kids

Running round old bulls in the pack

Arthritis usually found in back

But it’s not a total loss when passed

We see the running of their ass

  • I think this might be your best piece to date. It's reflective of these times- and I found myself riveted by the story then hurrying to reach the end.
