herself to cut it out. She knew she was a coward, and mothers needed courage.

Depressed, she bought a doll, trained for weeks, and finally worked it up her vagina. Just to know how

paramedics arrived and found her in a puddle of infection, she moaned, “Mary is coming.” One said,

“Ma’am, you’re in shock.” She wanly smiled. “Mary means wished for. Isn’t that beautiful?” But there

was nothing beautiful about Mary. Still, she wept when they allowed her to hold her. She went to jail

and never saw Mary again.
