My mother asking me “What is a bell?” A thing. No. A bell is an instrument

producing sound, a bell is a device used to measure averages, a bell shapes, illustrating averages

a bell rings, a bell is held by the two primary fingers and calls attention, bringing help on the run. Full stop. Of course 

I will help to button the dress, though afraid I shouldn’t be touched this way and afraid.                                          “Ok” says my face, I’ll forget everything making things up and fill  

very strange and quiet monster without any teeth for chewing.
