The two girls giggle on the sofa as Mamma brings home another black man. They excuse themselves to her bedroom, stealing pink lemonade and milk, mixing it in her room in shot glasses. They get Dad's old clothes out of the closet, folding themselves inside, twirling fingertips like wands sharing their secret incantations with him.
