Since I wrote about Barbara Stanwyck recently, I thought I’d give you one on another of my favorite stars!  Peace, Amy


Katharine Hepburn
deemed a house rentable
if she could take
an ice-cold shower
and come out refreshed.

She took the shower
without first informing
the real estate agent
After all, it was her decision
and she felt entitled

She’d simply emerge from the bathroom
wet towel around her fiery red hair
and say
or nay
