the dancing ukelele

The shirt was my mom's when she was pregnant with me. I found it in our basement, and last summer I gathered birch bark, purple cabbage, and peony petals and crushed and boiled them in a pot on the stove. I tried dyeing it, but there wasn't enough dye to saturate the entire shirt and now there are streaks of dark purple in the creases next to the burnt raspberry folds.
