A Preview From The Collection “P.I.”

… Heaven is sitting at a picnic table

the clink and clatter of empty bottles

a scoreboard of the game of the day

while a musician

bare foot and in tattered jeans

serenades the crowd

it’s wasting away again in Margaritaville

and you know that friends will be there

old ones

new ones

and ones who left us too soon

waiting to chime in with a


I’ve been there

I’ve seen it

Heaven is indeed a place on Earth
