Should there be drawings of these people? What do you think? Here’s Mae:
Mae grew up here
but for many years she lived
with her husband and five daughters
in Cincinnati downtown. The girls were grown
and she came home.
Every single day of her life
she looks like a holiday. Thursday a bright red suit.
Mae is big and beautiful.
What she knows of life is everything.
three men maybe four are on her
horizon. Musical ministers who can
play instruments. She wants a man who can
play music because
every single day Mae sings.
