About Phil Cross

Oh, for a pen, paper, flask of brandy,
and a comfortable place to meditate
I could write and compose for all to behold.

To be remembered in posterity;
but not for my poems, nor for my prose;
but instead, for my audacity.

And as far as my avatar is concerned:

I found Him at dusk along the railroad tracks.
A little green lizard lying on top of Him,
that seemingly assumed invisibility
when it took notice of me.

I stood Him up at the end of my street
to give Him dignity.

Two days later was a little lizard on my steps;
lying watchfully, intently studying me,
then it assumed invisibility.

Since then that lizard is nowhere to be seen,
as its master yearns southward bound—
awaiting nightfall, it would seem,
compelled to stalk unceasingly.

Could it be the Jersey Devil
I aroused so unwittingly?

Review by: Eunice Korczak on Aug. 21, 2014 :
A humorous light-hearted book that none-the-less portrays a beautiful (straight) relationship between two women, one around thirty and the other old enough to be her grandmother. The two enjoy traveling around the country together for a lengthy time. You will grow to love the two women and their wacky travels. As always the editor in me, recoils at the spelling and other editable errors. For the next book (and I hope their is another), I hope the author gets someone to edit - even if just a knowledgeable friend.

I liked this book. It was different but held my interest. I would read another book of Lorelei and Grandma. I would like to know what happens next. I actually chose this book because I'm a grandma. My only suggestion would be get a better proofreader to catch the spelling errors and occasional left out words
