A blue satin suit with a peplum
What a pilgrimage to find it.
in main streets and side streets
in search of something for my petite daughter
but enduring (the beautiful cloth, the dyeing,
the pattern, like a loose tail, of the peplum)
on its hanger, on its silver rack
as a bluebird's wing with
as if a small emboldened bird
feeling the peplum of its tail flew
