The (unfinished) Ballad of Katie Hale
Katie Hall had a form like Venus de Milo,
A face like Helen of Troy.
I tell you, one look would make a dead man smile-o,
A thing of beauty, forever a joy.
She was mean as a grizzly and tough as nails,
i've got hundreds, literally, hundreds sitting around on paper, in my head that need to be finished - a lot of them i've carried around since high school
i think they're just waiting for the spark to set off each separate one
