Hannah has been expressing herself through poetry from an early age. Please read this poem out loud, letting the “syllables unwind.”

transfiguration

the moon
loses control
in water

he did not know
why he looked
over each ripple,
slipped off his mask
and bled light

how this spell
spread his
shadowless fingers
over the belly,
fish dreaming below

the moon
bathes, and water
breathes
