Transformation Canal

Transformation Canal

- by Lucy Hinton

Inside this geologic fallopian tube

I gestate

Sensuous ripples and soft rocky curves

threading Eagles Perch to Reptilian Valley,

through Hole in the Wall out into Big Human World

Will I be born here

- Only if I dare die

And what will I look like? Feel like?

I must trust this ancient womb

to know what to do with me

and I with her

for long ago, we were one
