Wordplay #20  Tabaret

tab-a-ret> striped upholstery fabric: hard-wearing
fabric with alternate satin and watered silk stripes. Use: upholstery

Strong Cloth Existence

Senses that her life is stitched
together like tabaret fabric. Periods
of smooth moments, spent with others
who love words and language. Sewn
alongside other times, when she must
breathe in sizzling myriad hues
of bright colored silk, where words
are unuttered sighs waiting to become
sights, scents and sounds, then transferred
to preferred satin existence.
