Blood

"Your blood flowed before your heart was formed." -- Stephen Harrod Buhner

Your blood
began moving
before your heart
was formed,

humming and buzzing
through your veins

until you heard
a rhythm
through the waters
of the womb

calling you
like a humpback whale
singing
across oceans

and muscle
and nerve
came together
to form a magnetic drum

that set the iron
spiraling
in an wild dervish dance.
