My Blue (Black)(Indigo) Dress

My Blue (Black)(Indigo) Dress

 

If tellers tell blues and

blowers blow truth,

then these, my dreams

-unconscious terrors where you, Bruja,

brand my hands raw, in awe, of

my blue (black) (indigo) dress-

are of simple archetype.

 

If shadows elude illusions and

scars resonate reason,

then these, my dreams

-where you, my Shaman Yaqui Ancestress

strip my mirror raw, in awe, of

my blue (black) (indigo) dress-

are wrinkles on my aging skin.
