creative ramblings & reverie

Thursday, September 30, 2010


In a market in Brazil,
an abundant crop of stripes:

gathered and woven into cloth,
pressed into fat, round melons,
etched with silver down
the fishes' spines,

worked with elaborate care,
as a joke, into the face
of the old woman selling guavas.

—Christie (still melon season!)
