Foetus

foetus

approaching gender      its swift assignations   

a position of prayer      semblance of submission

above: context of light      its infinite gradations

below: absence      latent approaching

brink of form      deep swell to impossible

tide      raw scarlet to incendiary howl      cast

out of liquid fire      stark      unquenchable
