      ....Denise said that religion wasn't important.
      She wasn't sure if there was a God or not
      nor that it mattered save that she was a bit of 'God'.
      "Living is creating yourself, loving life is learning
      to believe you can cope with all of it."
      "Learning this until you get to the place
      where it doesn't matter, learning this
      until you learn what non-sense is and dig it."
      "The master plan, if such a thing could be so called,
      is that ultimately everything is without sense or reason
      and struggle represents the untogetherness
      of believing it otherwise...."
      I told her it must make sense
      cause it seemed to work for her
      and she laughed at me....
      I felt better, though.

         I'm in love with this life, though I don't understand it much.
         Eyes as clear as mine look back sometimes
         from another universe quite outside my own...
            Denise flys on impluse and lands on friends between hops
            and tells me its as simple as it seems
            with eyes that hide no lies.
         She's there, and she's not
            and I don't really know why
            but I love to watch her eyes and to see her fly
            She's crazy and she knows it
            and she smiles all the time
            'No sense', she says, 'in trying to act straight,
            when you're far beyond the line.'
