If she didn't exist, would I have to invent her? Yeah, probably. At this point, I know me pretty well. I keep reminding myself that my major misadventures have come from getting what I wanted.
My struggle is to simply re-claim my innocence.
Cable news would have made me cynical a long time ago if not for everything that I see in children's eyes. Those preachers on the radio dial would have ground me to a stub if I hadn't twirled the knob and found Little Richard. Politicians worked to steal my soul while dogs and cats saved my soul. I suppose I'm good for a few more laps.
