'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.'
