PRESENTS

  ‘Men, Women, Marriage, Relationships, Friendship, Love & Sex’ is volume II of the Peeling Off The Human Condition eBook series.

In the first volume of this series, The Hermit Poet explored our collective behavior as it relates to society. In this second volume, the focus is narrowed to male and female actions, as individuals and as participants on the many levels of togetherness that life offers.

The content is raw, direct, and sometimes comical. Human condition is in its most vivid form as men & women engage emotionally. Some moments are larger than we witness; carrying chapters of one’s life.

Relationships commonly originate by our emotional need to connect to another human. Love & sex will strengthen and spice up the connection. The more strength and truth these bonds hold; the more work is needed to keep it alive. Looking for comparability, we find that we are naturally opposites as we endure and enjoy our lives together.

Foreword By Carioca Da Gema

Boca Raton

My bicycle

Chained and locked to a coconut tree

I’m relaxing

At an indoor outdoor restaurant and bar

Drinking

Bordeaux wine

Eating

Gourmet

Pasta

20+ ingredient

Fancy dancy

Salad

Observing

Valets

Parking

Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, Maserati, and Lamborghini automobiles

The man sitting to my left

Gives me his card and says:

“I’m a financial wizard

Trust me”

The man sitting to my right

Gives me his card and says:

“I’m a bankruptcy attorney”

The old gambler

Lived in a small pool cabana

At a rundown motel

On Miami Beach

One evening

We drank several beers

Eat his homemade potato salad and kielbasa on the grill

When it was time for me to leave

Never again would we meet

The old gambler said:

“Save some of your coins so you do not end up broke like me”

291

Damn right

We are preppers

World

Is in the shitter

Two years of food on hand

Kitchen cabinets

Full of carefully marked cans

Solar panels on the roof

Giant sized chicken coop

All emergency supplies needed

Preparations completed

Every night 

Me and the Mrs.

Watch the news

Drink cans of beer

Feeling blue

World a zoo

Any day could collapse

I wonder how long 10 cases of rum will last.

288

Coming into the Hermit’s library

Wife

Said

“I cannot take it any longer”

“I need to dust this place”

Armed

With a box full of dusters

We cleaned a few shelves of books

Then

She

 Started sneezing

And

Needed to take a break

Saved

By an allergy attack

Until

Next time

285

The flourishing 90’s

The good life

Would not end soon

Dollars

Scooped up with a gigantic dustpan and broom

Swinging back and forth

Moving mountains of hay with a pitchfork

Shifting sand

Globalization

Moved across the land

Jobs have disappeared

Elites

Now offer peasants

Handkerchiefs

To wipe away the tears

275

It is  cooler than normal on this May Southeast Florida morning. I’m on my knees, running my fingers thru the dirt. My hands are dirty and this makes me feel happy.  The earth provides and I’m grateful. The vegetable growing season is almost over and I will soon place a light coat of mulch on the dormant garden area. Nighttime is for sitting in my recliner, smoking my pipe, reading the seed catalogs, and dreaming of next gardening season.

273

Some folks do not like changes.

Break the entire organization apart.

Resetting emotional equilibrium is the hard part.

It is time to do some spring cleaning.

Everything is covered with cobwebs and dust.

Chip away crust

Testing

One

Two

Three

Four

Shake up the beans

Rip the seams

Experimentation galore

Grab a broom

Sweep out the store.

Innovation is never a bore.

271

Choices

Choices

Choices

What should I do?

Choppy sea

Tourists gone home

Beach all for me

Everyday

I sit under the sun

Drinking

Agua de coco

With Jamaican dark rum

Should I go back and keep marching in the parade?

Play the charade

Or take U-turn

Toss 

The instruction manual

On the fire

And

Watch it burn
