she was short. hunch-backed.
. . . with skinny legs.
she was butch, and she was bi.
she was suspicious and suspect,
greedy and neglected,
dedicated to self-improvement . . .
. . . she loved Home Depot,
and she wanted a home.
she kept a thirty-pound cat locked in a room
accompanied by a needy rabbit ,
and she met Art Carney on the Fire-Escape.
among her posessions were an Abortion bill,
and a Shiny-Brite Christmas ornament scripted in glitter:
Merry Christmas, Mommy.
she was entombed in a graveyard condo,
third shelf from the bottom.
