L0004302 The anatomy of the human gravid uterus: foetus in utero.After G Perkins’s ‘here is life that might be death’

Woman             the incandescent drop into water
                            her deference to bow and break     bow and break

I am water                     and swell                                 my seas incarnadine

by moon’s dagger (a smile!)

tonight            don’t let me die           and die again


My flesh                       and blood skim this reservoir
cells                              dividing                          divining

I have tasted iron                    and salt           

my handprint is wet on the wall

death                            that is life                                   that is death
