Purple cloth

After Acts 16:6-15

I deal in purple
I deal in purple cloth
the purple of nobility
the purple of wealth
the purple of position
the purple for the people
who want these things

I sit with the women
talking, in prayer
the river flowing by us
like tears
the two men come and
sit, and then speak words
that turn tears to sobs

my heart opens like love
unlike any I have known
