Hush little baby, don't say a word...momma's gonna buy you a mocking bird...

Hum it as you feed the kittens. Stroke the fur on one, Cinnamon, before rising, back stretching.

Some day, you'll be too old for this.

Not yet, though.

and if that mocking bird won't sing...momma's gonna buy you a diamond ring...

Remember images of blood and bathtubs. Nasty things. You'd see nastier later, but at the time, that was the worst.

Maggie wasn't strong enough for that. So you had to be.

and if that diamond ring turns brass...momma's gonna buy you a looking glass...

Unlike some of the hookers, you were never ashamed. Some of them couldn't look at themselves in the mirrors for weeks. You weren't proud, but it was a job. Turn a few tricks. Make some money. Practice stealing.

Get much, much better.
