What We Have To Get By On

What We Have To Get By On

Men have wives, mistresses and lovers, sometimes all three, sometimes all three at once, and occasionally all three in one person, which usually leads to a psychotic meltdown and a cornucopia of pharmaceuticals.

Women have secrets disguised as men, sex symbols personified, cash cows and studs to take the edge off their grave disappointment. Women have dream men that none of the above can live up to, and then they have children.

There are exceptions, deviations and distortions and occasionally a case of untainted love, but by-and-large this is the way of things.

This is the quagmire the angels of the soul claw their way out of, shake like dogs to fling off the mucus, then spread their tiny wings and fly into a lightning-scarred sky.

    afraid to mention how they believe. Always follow your heart.
