Animalia

Transported from a Kingdom of intermingling cells

You unfurl out of your podded pomegranate shells

Bloat my belly

I want to pop & pluck your pearly crimson pods already

Fell the roots you want to laydown in my womb.

Palm flat, I pray, do not bloom,

Give me birthing space to grow out my limbs

Swoop, falter, glide into a future into a future;

Your sacrifice forever singeing my wings.
