Chalaba ghundi

They are piling up sarees
black, green, bejeweled blue and orange-pink

How do I chose beautiful over beautiful?
"You take both."
"No. I want the one only."

Joy Percy is teaching us to tie the saree
and I feel like a goddess, a beauty queen,
a princess, a wrapped gifty wearing beautiful.

Go show Nah Nah
and he says, "very nice."
"Chalaba ghundi."
