as important (as an excellent lunch)

the most
important
thing

how to judge
among the this
and the that
is a
complicated
task

when you are
young

always
my mama’s babe

always everybody’s
babe

but always
more grown up
than anyone
can tell

anyone believe

watch

watch me prepare
an excellent lunch
simply
an excellent lunch

just as
a woman must do

and leslie doesn’t like
me
going out
too much
for he thinks me too young
but . . .

when I do
it is the dance halls

the palais
or
the green room
or . . .

I also enjoy
skating

did you enjoy
the lunch
I made
for you

    • Thanks Robbie. There’s something both adolescent and childlike about Ida, who can demonstrate how grown-up she is by making an excellent lunch.

      I’ll introduce her and Leslie a little more later this morning.
