It will fit. Look down at yourself
in it, then look into the mirror.
Your posture is different. Good
different. Your hands are clasping
your waist. How small can you
make yourself, between your own
fingers. Turn away from your
reflection, as if to leave the room,
and look back over your shoulder.
This is what you look like from
behind, zipper on top of spine.
Everyone has seen you like this
except yourself. Spin a little to see
what the skirt does. The hem lifts
away from your knees, the backs
of your knees. Slip a fingertip
behind your knee and pretend
you do not own the finger. You
can wear it anywhere. You can
wear it to the grocery store.
