Self Knowledge and self acceptance are the keys to a peaceful life...Maybe. A Memeory of an old girl friend.

The Dawn Brought Clarity

She is up early.
When I wander
Into the kitchen
I find her out
In the backyard
On all fours
Through the grass
The balcony
From which,
Last night,
In the throes
Of some
High minded
With much
She had thrown
The last of
Her pot.
Emptying the baggie
Into the wind.
With an air
Of righteous

It takes her
Twenty minutes
To round up
Enough for a joint.
I make her a cup of coffee
And say nothing.

A good nights sleep
Any situation.
