  • Title: The Shaman
  • Artist: Driftwood Pacific
  • Description: 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 put on a dress, a shawl on 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”
