Cafe Vaquera at KMUN is over. Done. Finished. I am so grateful for the privilege of being on the air, sharing the music and the love for 15 long years. I feel proud of the integrity with which I approached my volunteer position and proud of the work.

I once knew a ball python named Monty. At first Monty frightened me, but as we grew to know each other, he would sit on my lap, curled up in a ball, literally. We would watch television. Monty knew me when I’d come over to his house, which made me feel oddly special; to be known by a serpent.

My church-lady mother was a closet Kent addict. She would lock herself in the family bathroom with a pack of menthol cigarettes and a Del crossword puzzle paperback. I spent many mornings yearning for an alternative toilet situation, scoffing at the tainted odor of smoke. Now, when I encounter a recent smoke sanctuary bathroom, I reek of nostalgia for my her.

Some people can eat you alive.
Some people suck the air out of the room.
Just when I was ready to take the dive,
He started a feeding frenzy of doom.
I didn’t know he was a piranha.
I didn’t mean to get involved.
“Hey Lady, do you wanna?”
I’d like to have the question absolved.

A black whale breached beside the boat.
A white orchid tucked behind my ear.
We laughed and partied into the night,
All was magic, joyful, without care.
I was a beautiful hula dancer.
He was The Handsome Turquoise Knight.
In the morning something was not right.
White orchids, red blood, blue fright.
The diagnosis was full-blown cancer.
Twenty five years stepped to the right
Since I danced with that orchid in my hair.
