Dismantled by Love

By Gordon Kuhn Copyright 1/9/2017

She came softly
Easily to his bed was led
And he found himself—suddenly dismantled
Unexpected the world spinning about his head
As if enjoying a first time cup of rich Turkish Coffee
Followed by a sip of mint liqueur that was fed
From the tip of his lover’s tongue warm red
That sought his mouth out amid a smile of rapture deep
To share as did they while the world disappeared forgotten
While within tousled sheets the pair gamboled
And he surrendered to her charms thus, so gently wed.              1/9/2017

The agony of love touches one and all in our lives here. Perhaps that is what God was thinking at the separation of man from the eternal flame and that is what we most seek in a variety of ways. We were once united in a whole framework but chose to be separate and distinct and now we are facing the dissimilarities brought upon by that determination to experience emotions as one single voice. It makes me think of the concept of the Borg. All thoughts together, linked as one, and now  we are separate. Like with the Borg, perhaps in the end resistance is futile, but right now what I want is a cheeseburger and fries. Fries! I cannot find any good fries anymore unless I go to McDonalds. And that is a fact. GK 1327/08.02.17




Bookreviews 1966! Every author I know likes and fears book reviews. They are a necessary part of the process of writing. Just like marketing. We love, hate, live, and perish…. perish? … maybe. I don’t know. Some people think bad reviews aren’t such an evil curse to run into. But, we hate bad reviews. Anyway, I’m wandering in my thoughts.

I have a new follower (don’t worry those of you who have recently followed me I will get around to commenting on you I’ve been busy and have not forgotten you) called Bookreviews 1966 has chosen to follow me.
