the tight weave of dowdy muslin

preserves its true nature

and defies the possibility of curves

unseamed edges unafraid

frayed beneath unabashed staples

welcome interruptions of paint

threads dangle and dare to be pulled

I don’t mean to make meaning

I mean, usually,

the reveal

of layers

of errors

of process

is enough

but caste is on my mind

and these uncloying pinks

squaring off and overlapping

against inky strips of blackness

just might be

unraveling the baby doll experiment

and rearranging the hierarchy
