Marjoram Woman

Poem By Dr. Charles A Stone

There are men who prefer chile pequin women,
red-hot mommas whose kisses set their lips on fire
and burn all the way down; audacious women,
slim of waist and broad of hip, with spangly red
earrings - fingers and toes painted to match.

I prefer someone more subtle, in a gown of
silvery-green foliage with white-tufted buds,
whose delicate fragrance drives bees wild;
a woman whose earthy flavors are released
on the stove or when dried and tossed in a salad.

She'll be there, my marjoram woman,
in my garden or somewhere in the kitchen,
waiting for the caress of my fingers,
knowing that when her lips brush mine
I will be driven to ravenous distraction.

where the lake's many faces
hide beneath the boughs
of willow trees in shade

I Couldn't Ask For More

If one day were added to my time on earth
I would want to spend it with you.
You wouldn't have to do anything special,
just being with you would be my reincarnation.

Hoops Of Self

and jumped into the same of her

and also little boysie

to whom the world

Wherefore America

The walls of the empire are thick
and strong, hardened by the dried
blood of generations of youth who
have sacrificed for its endurance,
