“The €aster Girl”

For fun and free is a good place to start – no matter how slow or how long my heart flutters by – but I want to be free in my spirit – like the butterfly, the butterflies

I don’t know how to handle so many delicate emotions inside – or that something more than usual might be a possibility – the glory of the unseen seeks to lead my thoughts – see we all work for the same boss

life is easier to hide  – and I cry over the life cycle of a lame but beautiful butterfly – and now my birthday power falls – on €aster weekend, I wonder why, because – either a backyard burial or around the corner a small resurrection calls…“I’m the €aster Girl!”
