Tyrian Purple

Tyrian purple
the embodiment
of privilege, worth

and drama

the reek of fish

overwrought
overwhelming
overthought
overpriced...

a variegation of history
so the books say

in retrospect

I look...

to cotton
to indigo

simple
honest
abundant

deep and rich
enduring

without the stench
of decayed life

I didn't have the last three lines in the original version, they were a first draft edit that I was on the fence about. Do they work, yes, but does it defeat the purpose of the allegory, yes. I took them off again. Thank you for the read and insight.
