This afternoon on September 26th, 2012 I found myself in one of the local WalMarts in McKinney, Texas. As I was walking the rows I came across a full length mirror. At first I was shocked in realizing that the individual in the full length mirror was me. I was immediately reminded I now was an elderly man. I then remembered reading many years ago that a man’s self-image locks-in when he reaches 45 and from that point forward that self-image remains with him. I was reminded of this poem, which is one of my major first written poems, where the individual in the disco club (me) came to the same reality. The mirror reminded me that changes thru our lifes is always on-going and sadly without mercy toward us.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….Multicolored lighting amidst the sound of rhythmic thunder pounded the huge hall. The laughter and droning noises had a hollow metallic sound. The human Ferris wheel was in motion around the center spoke. Quick glaces, smiles…some real other’s set in concrete faces. There was quiet desperation set in the eyes of many. Touching in passing moments of movement were soft warm bodies pressed against arms hips brushing fingertips. Out of loneliness did I seek this place a passenger on a self-made time machine. I am tired of too many futures coming to this moment. I want the warmth of my youth. Child-book romance where just the touch of a hand freezes time in its beauty. Primitive drums change tempo the words are lost to the sensation of physical self. Reality is moved to the edge of pulsating light beneath the feet of bodies…

Early this morning I noticed a tire that looked like it was running flat on my old model Lexus. I pulled into a QT gas station on McDonald Street in McKinney, where I noticed they had free air. After pulling into the slot and getting the hose, a good looking black man approached me, who was also waiting to put air into the tires of his car, and asked if he could help me fill the tire. He actually got down on one knee and made sure tire had enough air.
When finished I was blown away for his kindness, I said, “One kindness deserves another. What can I do to repay your kindness.” His remark, “I need a job.” I then told him about my blog site and if he did not mind that I took his picture with my smart phone, I would post it on my blog site with his work background and contract info.
His name Cloudis Winbush. His contact phone number is 972-863-9492. He is 45, a High School graduate with some college. He is seeking general labor work. He can work heavy equipment, for example a fork lift. Also his sister, who he lives with is also seeking employment. She can do day care and cashier work. Her unemployment is running out and is deeply concerned about paying the rent for both of them.

We are in a day and age where many have lost their life savings due to unethical stockbrokers in our cities, our communities, and our nation. Recently, a close political activist in our community passed on to me a link that assists in checking out local stockbrokers, not only in McKinney, Texas, but also in Collin County, Texas, as well as our state. All one has to do is to type in the name of your broker, and check off the box for agree to terms (a lack of responsibility of website with what is done in the public domain in revealing the information). Click on the link below:
Romance, in its many forms, is truly a beautiful human thing. I always find myself going back to my old poetry postings on the subject and simply “Recalling” such times from my own life. Best to have Lived, then not Lived at All!
Many write poems to sell. Others to gather a form of following of one’s ego. My only reason in writing my poetry is to share my own personal journey with others. The works are written to hope in writing my journey, others will be able to relate and connect and say in finishing a work, “That is exactly how I feel but could never put to words. I do not feel so alone now.”
