the good life.

Paint stains on my hands and
dirt stains on my feet
Beans beans and
more beans.
Waking up in the morning
and not wanting to move
because my body is so sore
from sleeping on the floor.
Always wondering
is there going to be toilet paper
in the bathroom?
When there is…
VICTORY!
Painting with Aisha
getting high on fumes
laughing too hard
as we discuss whether a taco
or hamburger
would win in a fight
(…taco pulls through in the end.)
Going to the doctor
with Aisha and Lindsay
to discuss our
parasites
worms
amoebas
(whatever it really is that’s living inside us)
We thought we were going home after that
but the people driving us ran errands instead
we had no idea where we were going
or how long it would take…
I loved it.
Tonight the girls and I left the children’s home
for the mall
a bus ride away
We sat outside at a restaurant
the air was perfect
the sushi was delicious
(all you can eat)
At first we ate for fun
but then we ate to get to 100
(we ended at 103)
Our stomaches were stuffed
and we couldn’t stop laughing
it hurt
but it all felt so good.
I am truly blessed
as I fall asleep again on this floor
dirty feet and all.
