Seven Skins

Seven skins; hem
The edge of a sari

Your sandals,
Tread openwork
In peacock gait
Bearing friction
Between tar and the toe
You march
Flaming the road
The seven skins…!

footnote: Its with the Asuras that Goddess Durga do war with and kills him with giant flame keeping vigil the bad omen to crunch.
The seven skins are the weapons that she armour with multiple hands and tread her way, vanquishing all that is immoral in eternal fire.
