  • I'm having trouble getting dressed.

    I look for a mu'umu'u hanging in my closet, but there isn't one.

    I want to wear a mu'umu'u.

    Something vast and voluminous. Covered with largeloudbright flowers. Something distracting to cover my shame.

    Don't look at me, look at my flowers. Don't see my fat, look at my billowing folds.

    Maybe one of those flowered housedresses like my grandmother used to wear.
    Maybe a tari or a burqa.

    Something to make me invisible.
