a play she wrote with friends called
Mama Dramas stories about our mothers.
My mother was visiting
my Uncle Alex’s nightclub somewhere in Montana
(did he really have a nightclub?) a handsome
man a friend of my Uncle’s asked my mother
out for a steak dinner. Turned
out the man was Clark Gable.
So my mother went on a steak date with Clark Gable.
What was he like I asked about a thousand times.
All his teeth were capped was all she said.
