Seventeen Months
This girl child speaks five words.
No for no and no for yes,"no" for either no or yes.
"Teewee" for wheat or oats or corn or barley or any food taken with a spoon.
"Go way" as an edict to keep your distance and let her determinations operate.
"Spoon" for spoon or cup or anything to be handled, all instruments, tools, paraphernalia of utility and convenience are SPOONS.
Mama is her only epithet and synonym for God and the Government and the one force of majesty and intelligence obeying the call of pity, hunger, pain, cold, dark-MAMA, MAMA, MAMA.
-Carl Sandburg
