Opinions of two lemons
1cup of autism
Pinch of love
200mls of domineering childhood
Season well with inconsideration
Mix all the above with two scrambled egg heads
Set the oven to my way or the highway
Cook until temperatures rise and set
Allow to cool overnight
We give thanks for our friends.
Our dear friends.
We anger each other;
We fail each other.
We share this sad earth, this tender life,
this precious time.
Such richness. Such wildness.
Together we are blown about.
Together we are dragged along.
All this delight.
All this suffering.
All this forgiving life.
We hold it together.

A beautiful afternoon
Old friends sitting in the winter sun
Amongst the fruit and vegetable gardens
Talk is relaxed and open
Meetings of minds engage
No pretense intrudes
Nor ego dominates the flow of energy
Intimacy shared and respected
The connection is organic like the surrounds
Nourishing our souls
Two ol’ dykes sharing company
