This collection was like music--beautiful, sensory, sensical (as opposed to nonsensical?), but also fleeting. When I got to "Brother Gui-tar's Blues in C" I heard music, and I think I remembered Paulette singing this passage instead of just reading it. But I don't know if that's a memory or something I made up.

Paulette Beete makes me feel like a natural woman.
