Mabel by William C. Burns, Jr.
published in Volume 2, Issue 3 on May 21, 1995

I would trust Mabel with an afternoon
   or money
      or love for that matter

Her large dark eyes shine
   hiding nothing
Her long dark arms
   harboring every lost kitten
      dog or man child in the neighborhood
Her simple skirt revealing
      just a bit of leg...

Mabel is the kind of woman that
   holds a family together
A woman that touches her children
   her man
      her life
With abandon
