Wandering Off

She forgot 
     To wear 
To the 
Country club
 - formal 
     Dance -
          (I heard) 

She used to be
     So stylish
     -so fine-

One time -
She was lost 
     Buying gas 
And had 
     To ask -
The way 
     Back home 

She almost stole 
     My boyfriend 

She was as good
     As that!

But no matter how 
We are ...
- Turquoise  Jaguar 
In the garage -
(She is still living 
     Across the street 
     From the beach 
With famous 

But, no matter what -
     There is this 
          Law ...

-won't go 
-cannot be 
          With -

That -

We all go 
     Away -
One day 

The game-board -
     This holographic 
          Video game -
Cannot really 
     Be won 

Some leave 
Some loudly -
Some wander off -

Some are welcomed 
     In -
The arms of 
     God -

And know 
The way 


I no longer have 
     An axe to grind. 
I gave up my axes 
     And my grinding wheel ...

The I that had these things 
Is becoming less 
     And less -
She is seeing 
     Some things 
As baggage 
Some others 
     As burdens 

Trouble and complications
To be avoided 

Now she needs 
     To give up 
Sugar and wheat 
Become neat

Good luck 
          That !
