Is her imagination not a curse but a boon? Some think her belfry’s been infested by a bat, when she sits each night and writes ‘neath the moon. She is a dreamer and realists rule the nation, so at dawn she writes and tosses poems in a bin. Hundreds of poems fill the rusty tin, and she knows they must weigh a ton. In her backyard, she sits on a mat, still writing every day at noon. Chestnut hair and a striking tan, her writing keeps her from meeting a man.
