Shapeshifter

Perhaps you’ll be like a Jupiter of the ocean
A great whale singing in the deep
Or like a seal, soft, sleek and whiskey
And if you are a Selkie
Then you will have a little belly
And if you are Phoenix
Then even if they grind you to powder
You will be like potassium
Ready to spring back into flame
You will always change
Never quite the same
Keep your foxy ways shapeshifter
This is what your life force is
You weren’t quite meant for the everyday world
And you can laugh at anyone who mutters names for you
Because you have no name and all names
And that’s what keeps you sane.
