Ode to Tennessee

My heavens, Tennessee!
How lovely this has all been, to be
Your many women

Lord have mercy on my
Little old pea-pickin soul, I
Love what you’ve given!

I love it. Indeed, I love them all
In different ways of course. I’d call
Amanda a masterpiece

And Blanche a train wreck.
Well, perhaps a streetcar, then, if I check
Myself correctly.

Poor Maggie deserves a mention
I’d have been her had I the intention
Of acting directly.

Oh they are all such joys
Tennessee Williams, your girls and boys
Of the stage.
