the giant lady

they can see it on my face
they tell me that i’ve been smiling more
they’re asking questions
   about her

the resurrector
   the changer of seas

the lady of the new
   the one who dreams of eels

   the giant lady

she
   can recite the classics
      by t.s. elliott
      and blake 

she 
   knows everything about
   paolo pasolini 
      and federico fellini

the one whose uncle makes wooden masks

she
   has the best recipe
   for porcini
