cocoon

by Brynn Dizack

change is not a swift thing,
but a stagnant or slow-moving pond,
accompanied by the cracking of dry sticks
or bones.

there are setbacks.
the child emerges without a face,
without a gender,
without a right foot.

there are remedies for these,
and reprecussions for those.

i have not yet begun to wait.

this poem, tho calm, is explosive in content, the bones...it explodes the limits of the mind in so few lines...kudos, peace, ~jewels
