(Poem by Wendy Howe )

She is exorcised when sunlight
filters through the ribs
and a new voice arises
diffusing her shadow.

Slender song, she returns
as woman to Winter's beach
and lingers as the sea lays forth
this sheer coat of silence.

Like the tide, she glides
in layers of estrangement.
Silk umbrella and manteau
offer the stem its black orchid.

Here, she flowers on a wet shore
waiting to be summoned
by another poet , hoping

to cast her heel marks
on the parchment's sand,
and fill his stone cup
with feeling that stains the tongue.
