A certain person wondered why

a big strong girl like me

wouldn’t keep a job

which paid a normal salary.

I took my time to lead her

and to read her every page.

Even minimal people

can’t survive on minimal wage.

A certain person wondered why

I wait all week for you.

I didn’t have the words

to describe just what you do.

I said you had the motion

of the ocean in your walk,

and when you solve my riddles

you don’t even have to talk.

— Maya Angelou
