About Phil Cross

I found Him at dusk aside the railroad bank:
A little green lizard perched atop of Him,
that seemingly assumed invisibility
on taking notice of me.

He was in the form of a fallen tree
lying stark naked in anguished repose
I could sense Him calling out to me.
I carted Him away to give Him dignity.

Two days later appeared a lizard on my steps;
lying watchfully, intently studying me,
it was, I was sure, the same as before
and then again, it assumed invisibility.

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

Could He be the Jersey Devil
whom I aroused so fortunately?
to be reincarnated for all to see?
Or some alien on behalf of my senility.

Oh, for a pen, paper, and flask of brandy,
to be inspired by Him so to meditate,
to rekindle memories or dream anew,
I could write and compose for eternity.

But I care not whether false or true
for such are for me alone and not for you
in no way intended for posterity;
but rather, for my audacity.

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
