Daily Prompt

Pellegrina


He wore a pellegrina,
purple trimmed. It
looked like wings
deflated by transgression
or by sin. To the child,
it was sacrilege to see
such vibrant colour pressed
upon such lifeless cloth.
It was black, to the floor,
inert, the deadened cassock
of that priest, in Lent.

For Daily Prompt: Purple
