I am very interested in Ms Mueller's poam "Alive Together" and woul like to understand it more. Would you please let me know who she refers when she talks about an unknown woman crying for her husband exchanged for a mule. I am confused about the expression she uses.

Thank you and Regards,


She is referring to a slave woman in the American south, forced to sleep with the Master while her husband and daughter are sold off as chattel goods.
