She stops where she is
strolling and she stomps
in her place. Why did
her mother
tell her to paint her
likeness? For what was her
shirt taken from her? Which colour did
she want to be her hair? Did
her aunt know about this? Would her
aunt come from heaven with
fire from her eyes? She looks
back at the house
and even though it is flames
she runs back to it,
to see what she’s never seen before?
