Praise for my Future Vagina

My rich Nile,
my silent stream,
you are the beginning of all nations
yet, you have held no war
and have no treaties to break.

You are wide and opening, then
something of a dam, you close.
You hold a jewel, a plum of diplomacy:
you bring all together in your conference.

The moon stirs, you rocket.
The victory of your seed
has turned coal to diamond.

You have made what was empty,
full.
