To achieve the
desired blue

the cloth had to
be lifted in
and out of the vats

in the heat
of India, Nigeria
or Thailand

Indigo- you used
to wear that deep- dyed hue,
it suited you

a blue as
deep as your eyes,

the lashes a flight of geese
on the last stripe of blue as the
sky plunges towards night.
