Luckily, I’ve never run into anyone with this one in real life.
He’s from the upper side of the tracks, so
None of us are surprised to know that
His mom’s not entirely happy
About him going to college with us.
We are surprised, though,
When she shows up in our tumbledown town,
Makeup caked to make eyes and lips
Sexy. She curls her hands and arms around
My hips and waist and shoulders,
Saying things about the meaning of
Low-brow to his straight-mouthed face.
