Soul 2001

Questioning the agility
of her pen,
she joins the conversation

Artificial heart, mechanical
battery operated
presented in a photo
held in hand

She says, flesh is carrier
of soul
Remember first kisses she
begs us
Remember butterflies
and the race
of a beating heart
This can't be replaced by machine

Science resolves the soul
to forget
we are together woven
Electricity feeds this flesh of lantern

and I

For me, it's in the stomach;
that is where butterflies
break from cocoons and pits flame fires
