“How Does It Feel?”

How does it feel?

Ah how does it feel?

To be on your own.

With no direction home.

Like a complete unknown.

Like a rolling stone.

OH GOD he’s singing about me.

Fucking rain!

Fucking blisters!

I can’t even fuckin’ feel my fucking feet!

Fucking shoes!

What the FUCK am I doing here?

I’m fucking wet to the bone!

Fucking HELL!

HOW the fuck did I let them talk me into this shit?

GOD! PLEASE . . . lead me . . . to do . . . Your Will!

Smile, Stupid, SMILE!

Hello, Mam, how many dozen children do you have here?

My God! YOU ARE DRENCHED! Come in out of the rain! Would you like a cup of hot tea?

Uh, yeah, sure, thank you. I can only be a minute. Would you be interested in . . .

Here’s a towel. Sit down. My name is Blossom, and this is Janet. We were just now praying, Excuse me, please, while I fix us all some tea.

Blossom stepped into the small kitchen beside the living room, and Janet pounced,

“What do you know about Jesus Christ!”

  1. Yes! We’re all in this state without the One who can straighten us out! Even Dorothy: “There’s no place like home.”

    1. As I recall, the freakin’ running shoes that I bought just for this door-to-door sales job that entailed so much walking and which gave me horrible painful blisters on both my feet that I had to simply walk through until I could no longer feel the pain were a dark maroon or “ruby red,” if you will. True story!
