Location: paved barnyard
Contents: dried cow pats, huge cow
tank with water three feet deep,
plus a slide down into the pool
Cast: wary cows; three small kids
Action: Joan (God) and Patsy (Jesus)
at foot of slide waiting to catch Jackie
(smallest) as she skitters down into
the blue waves: she's the "Good Woman
Coming to Heaven"
Postscript: Jackie (now oldish) hopes when
her slide-time comes it will be that easy

2022 Jacqueline Jackson
