Childbirth

 

Here is how it ends—the whale
departs from its shell

and there is a curve of body and blood, a trail

of the mother’s womb. Counterpoise:
the redistribution of weight

and water—for a moment, you can see

the sea rise—and then,
the equilibrium.

Cell-like,

and I see the earth growing smaller.
