she does have a name    
not that the charcoal man    
ever calls her by it    
he calls her bébé
darlin’
poupée
and when she’s full of herself    
showin’ out    
actin’ woman  
Mamou  

charcoal man watches her  
sail cotton skimpy
naked hands
open to night
she bows
stretches
purple roses
lie on a soft mound
an offering
to demons
and the most beautiful of angels
she laughs
daring chime
holds arms
righteous
for her man

when the lady was a true bébé
old priest dropped
water on her sparkle head

tiny pink pout
lady Jeannette

not that the charcoal man
ever calls her that

He knows one name
in the dark...

and only she
hears it.

Always.

Well done, Lady!

Jeannette. It is so.
Still captured, but now I know at least one of their names.
