writin' and whatnot

Day 18 of 30

JENE'S GIRLS Jene got three little girls who look like their daddy but God already took daddy back to the lighthouse

so these three little girls already know what it's like to capsize in the blue out of the blue

found out mommy could inflate could become a raft to get her girls back to shore to safety

where she teaches them that the water is fickle spastic uncertain and mommy as a raft may not always have air

and even though daddy is in that lighthouse shining on the three of them Jene teaches the three of them to lock arms

tight

and forever be each other's life guards
