she's in heaven


who would have thought?
believe me
i tried
wrong on so many levels
my darling little Mormon girl
cigarette
rave beads
casino
gambling

she hounded
from Salt Lake to Mesquite
"can i just spend $1 in the slots"
which ended up $2 or three

but,
control went out the window
long ago

what does it mean...to be "right"

child of God
kind heart
good
impulsive
trying

and when all was balanced on the scales
stoping for a smoke
showing us how to be "lucky"
her giggling
our feet melting into that hot hell
10 in the morning pavement

being right and uptight
just seemed wrong

in the end
hugs win

I have loved catching up with your entries since coming home. So awesome.

She beamed all the way to Cali and had a blast. It was so nice to have her there, and you really made it fun for her. You are a great example.

Well, maybe not beamed "all the way" to Cali...I heard she got sick of the drive. ;)
But,
You know what I mean.
