This is post 3 of 6 of a series of poems and prose that Rara sent to be shared with the Stories community. Next week we take a break from this series and will feature two posts that were submitted to be shared, and then we will resume this series the following week.
This post from Rara hit me harder than most. She has taken something her husband wrote in his novel, Orange Buffalo, and adapted it to her current situation. If you haven’t read his book, you should. You can also find some artwork and other items he put together based on the book on RedBubble. And, please donate what you can to the Rara Relief fund. Every little bit will help her get back on her feet.
What a good girl – – a strong girl – –
She’s gonna grow up to be a felon, a widow,
What a good girl – – a loving girl – –
She’s gonna learn how to be mean –
alone – empty.
What a good girl – – a brave girl – –
She’s gonna fill herself up with hot air
