[1977 Kate Painting of Geo.]
[1975 Geo. Poem about Kate]
So I told her, "Kate, whenever you see me today
Please just smile and say 'It's all right.'"
So I stepped off the el and looked round
For a circus, laid my face to the colors
And grabbed the trapeze as it swung by.
The crowd was disappointed.
I'd let them down --half up the
Ladder, I could go no higher.
"Listen folks, I can't do the
Triple flip into the flying forest
Fire because I got a train to catch!"
Halfway down the ladder, skinny
Me in sequined tights, caught
A WHOLE TRAIN! Kate
Punched my ticket and said,
"They're applauding the guy who
Threw it, but it's all right.
