Darlene
 

 
 

Darlene used to talk about her street life as if it was the only game in town.  She had tried to sell her baby, Jimmy.  She regularly roughed up street punks and loved to harass gay men.  She felt as if she was above social expectation and was intolerant of people who didn't see life through her eyes.  Well, she would have you think that she was "all that".

She was scared shitless.  She only let her guard down when she'd talk about her appearance in the casket.  She worried about her hair, about her dress, about how she'd look dead.

She looked spectacular.  She had found peace.
