"Who would ever want to be treated like a woman in a hospital?"
--Bernadette Mayer, "Fixation"


My mother and my grandmother are both still mad
about being treated like women in hospitals.
And that is how we got here! 
I tell my grandmother that my friend Annmarie
recently gave birth.  My grandmother looks at me,
says, "I wouldn't do it for anything."
