If you follow your bliss, you will always have your bliss, money or not. If you follow money, you may lose it, and you will have nothing ~ Joseph Campbell

Jack

Jack and Jill went up a hill
he called her Jilly
and she was his first
when they were 16

they walked up together
she was a little ahead
and he watched her

her dress was pink
and short sleeved
and she had a bandage
across her arm where the fence had caught her the day before

when they reached the top of the hill
he wet his lips
she had her back to him

he quickly closed the gap; the birds ceased

the knife went into her smoother than he expected
and the bloom around the blade titilated
and flowered over the pink cotton

he studied her as she became still
lying in an ocean of green
and rolled her
quickly
to the sinkhole
and pushed her in
