She Called Me Mother
T758665675"When she gon come? I lookin at de people dem but I can't see her. She a pretty lookin ting, she does stan' out amongst these faces dripped in dissatisfaction..."
Evangeline is waiting; she has been waiting a long time. She waits for the Black Swan to glide through the station and show her a little warmth and kindness. She waits for a ticket home to Trinidad, the sun, the mango trees, and the street vendors selling curry. She waits for Shirley the daughter she let walk away all those years ago. "I try not to tink about she too much, 'cause de pain dem thoughts bring it like a heard of buffalo runnin wild in a field, an I beneath dem foot."
Will her daughter ever return to her and can she ever forgive the Mother that let her go?
