JULIA ALVAREZ (1950 -
Dusting (199 6;)
Each morning I wrote my name
On the dusty cabinet , then crossed
The dining table in script , scrawled*
In capitals on the backs of chairs .
Practicing signatures like scales
While mother followed , squirting
Linseed from a burping can
Into a crumpled - up flannel .
She erased my fingerprints
From the bookshelf and rocker .
71
Polished mirrors on the desk
Scribbled with my alphabets .
My name was swallowed in the towel
With which she jeweled the table tops .
The grain surfaced in the oak
And the pine grew luminous .
But I refused with every mark
To be like her , anonymous .
