Tuesday, May 12, 2009: On the Street…The Designed Cover Up, Sydney

Against the white of my shoulder,
The sunburn blazes, ruby and angular
As the tiles of light thrown from
A stained glass window onto
The church’s slippery carpet.
In my synagogue, Chagall’s
Famed windows hang in black
Frames. This version is a copy
By the rabbi's wife. Their careful needlepoint
shows color and shape, figures
dancing, candles, horses, the moon.
And so we choose versions when retelling:
Glass for thread, white for garnet red.


  1. Glass for thread, white for garnet red.that last line is going to stay with me.

    you're brilliant.

  2. LOVE the last line!! - oh i see someone else has commented on it too - it has power.


    P.S. My pleasure re. mascara!! Let me know if you got in, It looks intriguing...
