Follow-up to Guacamole

Sing song

And now to what end?

The breeze has changed and she's grown indifferent to changes

and her questing remains driven by that which is basic and undefinable

Sing-song.

So, it happened to her and it happened to her in other ways as well. You'd have thought the daughter would show some pause or at least be a cautionary tale.

It's all fixable, though. Right?

Sing: song

She can make it undone...hit a reset button...

Extinguish that which is the natural consequence of standing in the hurricane.

Maybe in that fractured moment of release there can be a divergence. A new pathway can open ripe and raw and offer some salvation.

But...

Sing, song

We know better.

The Guacamole girl has a quota to fill...

a quota of emptiness.

and she's just getting started.
