Blessed the altar with rosewater, lit seven candles even though I know I canít afford it. Twin mirrors showing endless replicas of the concrete effigy studded in cowries, spritzed with parfum and lingering cigar smoke
Mother loves finery
Strewed pearl necklaces and folded silk kerchief with gold earrings placed on top for good measure
The offerings I give to a glutton craving everything, yet never receiving the one thing her heart desires. To ask assistance of a woman married thrice at once, I must surely be desperate. But that is why Erzulie Freda is here, why she demands so much; the price one pays is surely one of great cost however she is worth it
Between sugar loafs, pears, and lipstick this gaudy display gives me a sense of hope in a time of emotional recession, worth its weight in saffron for the morally bankrupt.
Cashed out shenanigans the collectors will no doubt write down, tallying up all the debts Iíve yet to pay, keeping track of my hearts tab.
But she is willing, I forever grateful and we will work out my arrears as I fondle my latest treasure.
