To my friend and colleague:

an artistic, malleable face

celluloid impressions flow

a nose that expresses tranquility

thick dahlia lips speak of passion

a quixotic smile nudges the mind

 a lithesome soul breathes a mystery

a tenderness touches the spirit

and fashionable takes to the street

walking with intimate discretion

earrings and toe rings favor gaiety

to mingle yet not become entangled

window shopping to meditate

the secluded myth of a dream

distant and close by reflection

savor the hidden craving

the aroma of a spicy dish

an evening taste engages


in black & white.
