United States
Through Harold’s Lens:

Playboy!
Loaded fly rod in hand
Wandered
Hills
Valleys
Mountains.

Eight-weight
Teasing trout
Dangling bait
Chasing tail
Morning, noon and night.

Moist creeks
Wandering streams
Soft shorelines
Full backing of
Mankind.

Banks of breeding bunnies
Tools in hand
Digging
For libido of man.

Pick-up
Lay down
Set the hook
Strip the line
Unload the rod.

Guiding N.O.W.
Steinem, Friedan, Fonda
No catch
Dry fly.

Playboy Mansion dam
Runoff
Steelhead, Hog Sucker, Southern Playfish
Bridle Shiner, Cutthroat, Killifish
Sleeper, Snook, Chiselmouth
Even Logperch and Paddlefish.

Ego on top of many mountains?
Many egos wearing mountains?

A little boy with grown up toys?
Little toys with a grown up boy?

Riding rockets to the moon.

Aging fisherman
Hatched
From warm waters
April nine
Nineteen twenty six.

Eighty-eight year journey
Eternal climb up mountains of lust
Traversing curving trails
Back to warm home.

Happy Birthday Hugh!

Ave Maria. Schubert Opera:

Atop
Touching our Lord
Draped in cascading folds of gold
The Immaculate Conception.

Nestled below
Silently in prayer
Whispers of peace
Whispers of help
Whispers for our poor.

Draped in flowing folds of white
Sisters of the Immaculate Conception.

Wrinkled old man
Rags of threads
Rags of holes
Shuffles slowly
Cobblestones.

Soft knock
Rugged mesquite door
Rusted hinge creaks
Angelic face
Peers
From within.

Humbled old man
Twisted
Gnarled hands
Paints cross on chest
Head bows.

Aging hands of love
Quietly pass nourishment.

Whispers
Of love
Of comfort

Old old
Our sick
Our poor
Our lonely.

Amen
