Introducing Mabel Honeycutt (I) – by Michelle McEwen
Mabel Honeycutt is a character who has yet to find a home in a story. So far, her story is told in snippets: some sound like poems, some sound like songs, some like diary entries. The story will come.
Mabel Honeycutt pt. 1 (Mabel & Sadie)
My sister Sadie got off work early.
We sat at the kitchen table, talkin.
She asked about my lipstick.
The one she said was the color of dried blood.
I told her I got it from a drugstore back home.
She wanted to try it, so I let her. It looks good on her.
I told her to keep it. I have another tube.
