Earthworm’ Castings

With Jean Ponzi

Transform

One of those words from Latin.
Roman roots:
as patriarchal as they come.
Trans-Form
Thru the Form
Change Form
out the other side
Different
The original form gone away.
Gives way
as a new Form
embarks
on Being.

Trans-Form-ation:
Terrifying!
Old form dies or goes away
So something new arises.

BUT

In Nature, 
this happens all the time.
Forms change. 
Living, dying, cycling through
Life’s constant round of changes.

We, the People
could embrace this
Change-A-Rama
If we could learn how
natural
transformation can be.

Where are models?
Birth
Seasons
seeds – eggs – sperm – cells
Compost.
And, yes: dying. 
Nature models all this
with no need to whip up fear

BUT

All the models are on Man’s (sic)
Naughty List!
Bodies
Women
Women’s bodies
Bodily functions (esp. women’s)
Nature

Hmmm . . . see a theme here?
Could our Homo species learn
to change
without a wallow in
Fear & Loathing?

Change our Models
Change our Syntax (sin-tax)
Change our Forms
Change our Minds
Change of Heart
Trans-Form
