she wears her multicoloured
dress when she tells stories;
she calls it her storyteller’s dress –
because it is..  it boasts a dozen
separate and distinct colours;
each colour owning its own story,
each story owning three more
stories for her to tell … at least … that’s
the way she tells it.  sometimes, one
colour will run into another, and stories
will blend; that is where new stories
come from.  the storyteller says this,
looking over her right shoulder … as
she begins to turn over her right
shoulder.  sometimes, someone will
take a piece of a story home with them
because that is all they can remember.
they will tell that piece, and they will pull
another piece from their pocket … and
they will search for other pieces of stories
in a small bag of scraps of stories that
everyone carries with them … or
they wil catch up a piece of story the wind
tumbles over the toes of their shoes.  and
there are more stories, newer stories, or
older ones newly rediscovered.
the storyteller turns slowly around … then
around, again … and slowly more quickly
around until stories are flying from her –
grey stories, and brown stories; and
they are black and they are white –
catch them!  hold on to them!  look them
in the eye!  listen!  the stories will tell themselves.
