Sea Change

for Amy

I tried to imagine how it might feel
To be a woman trapped inside the body of a man,
But I confess, I'm not that complicated.

I cannot conjure up the necessary feelings
That would lead to such a thwarted state of being.

However, as a friend, I commend your concentration,
And I see that your resolve will not dissolve—
You will complete your transformation.
