she was

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,
Angelic Candlesticks,
and a Shiny-Brite Christmas ornament scripted in glitter:
Merry Christmas, Mommy.

she was entombed in a graveyard condo,
third shelf from the bottom.
