Her name was Georgia,
like the place,
and she was my introduction
to all the things
I shouldn’t like
but do.

Booze; sex; cigarettes; girls.

All things that a
respectable young lady
should stay away from.

And yet I stuck to them
like Georgia honey,
like Georgia’s hands on me.

her work will change someone's life.
