Why Not?

Peggy Claire is half cowboy and half Southern Belle. She was born in New Mexico and raised in New Orleans. She has made her final home as far South and West as she could get (and still be in the United States) in San Diego. With the exception of a few years spent as a singer/songwriter, her penchant for writing poetry has been a private matter. Until now.

Can't help but keep track of
Each forgotten plan
(I'd judge you faithless if you weren't
 so innocent)
The wise one in me points out
I don't need this man ...
The wild one in me says,
"So what? Why not?"
