Excerpt

'I curl in the way an inviting finger might summon you –

I push away.

My translucency plays with the sky-

I carry the salt wind water-

I carry the tide.

I carry the people from one coast to another.

 

History has made me political – and politicians make me current –

Towards their respective representations.

 

I am the less Wild baby of my western sibling,

Neighbouring smaller/ great spaces – the tool for their gains

Unwillingly held, as a child’s five fingers grips a single adult one,

Their unknown strength, me stooped to one side.

 

Yet when I pull up, they dangle and cry.'
