Ancient Linen

 Carbon data

in aging test

tells for certain

what year she dressed.

 

But not the who

of that woman’s

so long ago

neckline, bosoms.

 

Metal necklace…

still in the tomb?

And her earrings?

What of her womb?

 

Dressed or naked

life she lived well

back when time’s weave

was parallel.

 

NOTE: The dress someone wore a long time ago was in the news:
