She was locked in time,
with keys thrown away.
forever young and crazy
top down /in the rain/ half eaten Sno-Cone
in the backseat

larger than life, eating up scenery
if the camera wasn't rolling, you couldn't tell it by her
she changed clothes weekly, not trading- discarding
wholesale rummage sale and Salvation army donation
(often pleased when her sweaters found their way back)

She was locked in time,
with keys thrown away.
It's sad that the truck took her down,
but maturity never would have been her style,
after a caterpiller becomes a butterfly it never looks back.


thanks to ebbixx, for the title and the inspiration
