>Her pencils say Lena
> Her black reeboks marched in the Women's March in NYC
> She was Saba's mama and Ellen's and Stephie's and Barbara's
> She was old
> We never run out of blue towels since she died
> I wasn't sure we'd live through the funeral procession
> She's under some books
> She had a lot of sewing stuff
> She knew how to use all that sewing stuff!
> Those cousins of yours called her BubbieLee
> Clinton St. on the lower east side
>We were lucky to know her
