It’s not Complicated

the study of woman
never understood
one of these days – we’ll step back and listen
be a unison in outward – in

paint away Picasso –
zen deception womanizer
paint away the meaning
a dance -a- towel toss

Let’s Take You and I

the ease of David Brubeck
baby take 5 – you and me together
simplify the complicated
nothing but a song to sing


nothing to study here
just you and me

together nothing studied
no illusion -no- teley standards

Grown Up

woven together
no keeping with the Jone- zzz’s

baby study me – baby
i’ll study you

at your holding – holding night with me

– aren’t we free?

Without A Question

never – hardly ever

versus me…….

* Dave Brubeck was an American jazz pianist and composer, considered to be one of the foremost exponents of cool jazz. His piece ‘Take 5’ is considered a work of brilliance while performed live with great ease….

* Pablo Picasso regarded as one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century. In his personal life he was known to have complicated relationships with women. “Women are machines for suffering,” a 61 yr old Picasso told his 21 yr old mistress Françoise Gilot. “For me there are only two kinds of women, goddesses and doormats”.
