    Diane Glancy
    “Solar Eclipse

    Each morning
    I wake invisible.

    I make a needle
    from a porcupine quill,
    sew feet to legs,
    lift spine onto my thighs.

    I put on my rib and collarbone.

    I pin an ear to my head,
    hear the waxwing's yellow cry.
    I open my mouth for purple berries,
    stick on periwinkle eyes.

    I almost know what it is to be seen.

    My throat enlarges from anger.
    I make a hand to hold my pain.

    My heart a hole the size of the sun's eclipse.
    I push through the dark circle's
    tattered edge of light.

    All day I struggle with one hair after another
    until the moon moves from the face of the sun
    and there is a strange light
    as though from a kerosene lamp in a cabin.

    I pun on a dress,
    a shawl over my shoulders.

    My threads knotted and scissors gleaming.

    Now I know I am seen.
    I have a shadow.

    I extend my arms,
    dance and chant in the sun's new light.

    I put a hat and coat on my shadow,
    another larger dress.
    I put on more shawls and blouses and underskirts
    until even the shadow has substance”
    Diane Glancy
