Maria's Life In Sixty...

I

Reading of her will.
Short, exact, to the point.
Some kitchen utensils
frozen chicken

tomato paste can...

Rain.
Wet.
Enters bar.
Hit and miss regular
asks

Perplexed, befuddled "Huh?"
escapes her lips...

III

Birth in hospital.
Mother pushes and screams...
Out she comes
bloody,
wondering what for?
Doctor cuts umbilical cord.
She sighs...
