Body chords - a poem

Updated on December 22, 2009

Body chords

shuffle the chords round the torniquet

a shrinking heartbeat drains our souls

a song rises between the ribs

lain by hands turned away by life

the music sings in a vein of blood

that carries life to the scar

your pale skin -

              - opaque as entrails of smoke in the air we breathe -

is traced by blue thread

I'll reach the backbone of your joy

and touch the message in your eyes

I'll swim to you

find a vessel to you

pour the miles out to you

if the bones can move

if the moan is sweet

if the earth turns

I'll decipher the message in your eyes
