>"Blue Selvage" writer’s island #20-superstition


A blue blouse adheres to
stitches, moving along the finest edges
of colours, exploding and vibrating
patterns, laid out smoothness
Hands slide, holding together beauty,
ease of fingers pressing with
great care …
a seamstress
Give or grading matters most,
constructing from selvage of fine material
A top stitch keeps everything in position
while searching for a safe place to exist
We tuck and gather to become the pattern,
dancing to maracas’ syncopation
as we seek to be that blue blouse
