Ready

Art by Jimmy Law

She has discovered him.

She has watched him, studied him, scrutinised him, reviewed him, analysed him.

She has surveyed him, evaluated him, interpreted him, considered him.

She has pondered, reflected and deliberated.

She has read him carefully.

She has nervously sipped at the heady wine of his dark religion.

She has tasted it on her tongue, held it in her mouth, felt it slide down her throat.

She has felt dizzy at his power, his control, his command.

She has begun to understand the nature and strength of her own self, her own needs, her own desires..

She is ready for his seduction, his instruction, his domination.

She is ready to be his.

Man in a suit

English-born actor Cary Grant leaving his London hotel, April 24, 1946.

English-born actor Cary Grant leaving his London hotel, April 24, 1946.

I have never quite understood it.

The fascination some women have for a man in a suit.

Perhaps my incomprehension stems from the fact that I have worn them all my working life. They have been my uniform, my wardrobe, my second skin. They have been my attire from general office to boardroom. my inevitable clothing for business travel all round the world. The archetypal Englishman dressed in a Jermyn Street suit, formal. double cuffed Egyptian cotton shirt, silk tie, cufflinks, leather handmade shoes and belt.

But the first thing I have always done on arriving home is discard the tie, remove the jacket and replace the trousers with a faded pair of comfortable Levis. Even before I pour myself a glass of wine.

I am now close to giving up work in order to write full-time (almost certainly just for pleasure rather than artistic gain – given my lack of talent and industry). This current business contract will, if all goes well, be my last. A week ago I gave a dozen of my suits to a charity store. I cannot wait to give away the rest.

Except that I will keep a few back.

Who knows when I might need to impress?

(arches a mischievous eyebrow)

The photograph, which I believe is credited to Keystone and owned by Getty Images is of the English-born actor Cary Grant. 

I wrote this a year ago. The business project stretched out far longer and more intensively than I expected, but is now, apart from a few loose ends, all but done. I am now immodest enough to call myself a writer.

And yes, I still have a half a dozen of my favourite suits hanging in the wardrobe.

All because

Art by Steve Hanks

She is content

yet restless

shy

yet bold

calm

yet excited

solemn

yet joyful

cool

yet on fire

confident

yet nervous

secure

yet on the edge

all because

she knows

she belongs

to him.

Wona

Another of my occasional posts playing you music I like, but you might not know.

‘Wona’ is a fantastic collaboration between Mumford & Sons, Baaba Maal, The Very Best and Beatenberg. It is from a collection of songs called Johannesburg and recorded recently, as you might imagine, in South Africa.

Infectious, melodic, uplifting. And great musicianship.

Wanting

Art by Steve Hanks

This wanting you

is as constant

as the ebb and flow

of the sea

the waxing and waning

of the moon

the ever-present pull

of gravity

and the endless turning

of the planet.

Kidnap

1508008_966702156673621_3499973431804225653_n-590x590

Sometimes I long

to make you my captive

blindfold your eyes

bind your ankles and wrists

and steal you away

from the rest of the world.

Only to release you

into my adoring arms.

 

A kidnap

and a rescue

all in one.

Breath

Art by Andrea Hubner

Someday

I will feel a gentle

breath of wind

on the skin

of my cheek

that has once

run its fingers

through your hair.

 

I shall know

and smile.
