  • Floating on the belly of Inle Lake is an old showroom

    Where traditional Burmese clothes are made and sold

    Piles of raw silk rustling flirtatiously

    The humming tap of looms of cloth being spun out

    Small swells lapping the wooden posts.

    Sprawled in this weavers den

    Paying no notice to the out-of-towners perusing longyis and purest cottons

    Lolling and laying lovely

    She just kept dreaming.
