lifeblood

April 3, 2011

the bag of skin

shaped by flesh

hiding invisible bones

 

a brain that sparks, that fizzes, that spins

but a heart that pulses, that thumps

the deep heart

the soul heart, the linking touching magnetic heart

that pumps the blood

 

blood green as apples

blood blue as berries

blood as crimson as the night

blood quicksilver and goldenbraided

the ancient language of the blood, written through the flesh

cycling, ever cycling through past and future.

 

blood of Christ, blood from a stone

on the tracks, of the oath

blood to shed

blood to bind

(bloodless is lifeless)

blood is life
