the heartbreak rides

"Just out of the woods
and yelling down the mountain,
  

My dress & jacket are thrifted. 

all I really wanted was to go downtown
  


and so we ride.

The hearbreak slides.
 







She led the modern
sunset to your window,






gestured with a plane jane hand,

she said "Let's go."

"Allez!" she cried.

The heartbreak rides for free.
 
California adds some casual bedlam,  something in the basic swing of things led them to victimless crimes.

See Mom, I really do buy the music tights you bought me years ago.

The heartbreak climbs.



Playing with your words,
 a girl and two headlights,


blinders on the interstate,
 we want the good life. 


"LA!" she cried.
The heartbreak rides for free."

  6. Your dress - and jacket - look soooo lovely, so cute! But the funny thing is that at first, I thought your legs were full of tattoos, and then I read about the music tights! :) Sweet ones!
