She looks sad. She doesn’t look sad to me. Looks like she’s saying, “come and get it”! She looks happy because she’s got her legs thrown out. I think she’s hungry for fried chicken. Or, more than fried chicken. Whatever turns you on!
She’s on the beach. Let’s try Atlantic Beach in the 1950s. Ocean City, Maryland! Looks like it could be here. I’ve never seen a bathing suit like that! Come and get it! Strip me! If he was ready he doesn’t want to be bothered taking all that off!
We can call her Amanda Lucy Lee. Old enough to know better! Think she just left her husband? Yes! That’s why she’s all smiles! “I’m going to celebrate”! “Don’t have to wait ‘till New Year’s Eve”! New Year’s Eve ain’t promised! Get it while you can!
She’s feeling a cool ocean breeze. Cool her off because she’s hot to trot! She’s waiting on someone to come see her. A casual. With that smile it could be either a male or female. I think she’s waiting on a man the way she’s got her arm outstretched…”I’m all yours”!
What’s in her hair? Might be a rose. I thought it was a flower. It looks like it could be one. I think it’s a scarf. Anytime you go to the beach you can get happy! She came from the city. The “big city”! New York! Somewhere cold. That’s why her knees are covered. “Free like a bird”! That’s why she’s got her arms out like a bird!
Beach! The smells! The breeze! That’s what I like! It makes me hungry. She might have some children. They might be teenagers. Not so young she can just walk off and leave her husband! Now that he’s come to get her she says, “I’m ready for whatever”!
-China recites a speech the children in her church would say: “What you looking at me so hard for? I didn’t come to stay! I just come to let you know today is Easter day”!
