Your scent surprised me in aisle ten

 At the market today

Catching me unaware and ill prepared

I was transported

Into another time

 When brown eyes held my gaze

And be-stilled my heart

I wish you had been there

They still have candy-corn

I made it through college, started at Pace in New York, family seemed to think I needed a business degree. I didn't last long, two double periods of accounting a week and I was off to N.Y. U. To make a long story short ( too late for that) I graduated from UCLA and actually, my biggest kick out of that is just saying, especially here on the east coast UCLA, but I could care less, been in Boston since 1975, though I was coming for a year or so. A very good friend at the time, she said to me "Dan you'll never leave Boston" so dear Florida “Sun Spot Baby" you're down there, been in and out of radio, TV, acting and that's me in a nut shell.


  1. Nice piece… it sounds almost exactly like the beginning of one of my poems.

      Thank you Anya. It’s probably the shortest thing I have ever written. However, I felt it said what I wanted it to..

Got something to say?
