Paperback Bible

From Lambchop’s “Paperback Bible” – a reminder to me, tonight, of simple folly, and of the cowardice that leads people to lose themselves, and run the risk of causing others to lose themselves along the way.

Then there’s a Reba designs
Size eight, prom pageant dress
It’s icy blue
With sequins worn just once
There are others that are strapless
But this one’s slit above the knee
If you’re looking for
Something perfect for that student
