Review of I want to think like a magi from New Organism by Andrea Rexilius

I want to think like a magi from New Organism by Andrea Rexilius was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on January 15, 2013.  Written in a free-association style of free-verse from an obvious feminist perspective, the poet juxtaposes images of fish and fissures with metaphors for vaginas and broken hymens.  I don't usually go for overtly feminist poetry, but for some reason this one moved me.
