It Helps Keep Her Numb
She was flawless at forgetting, she learned to put those memories away.
When they were little ladies, she erased who was she just to raise them in a perfect circle.
Early on, she composed her plan, she referred to as “Eighteen”.
The plan came early due to her lack of refrain.
They were the jaguars, while the rest played the tortoise.
There was mindlessness and selfishness and thoughtlessness.
The woman, who once existed for the two, walked away one step a day.
Time elapsed. She plus him were not perfection.
Obstacles went unnoticed. The dusty old ways became all too familiar.
Continual work and no play helps keep her numb.
