Heartbeat

Pulses of rhythm

dance through

my spine

Beats of a bass drum

press in—

to mine

Nurture this moment

of two

to one

The heartbeat entwined:

gu-gung

gu-gung

Depths of perception

of here

of there

Grasping at nothing

but soul

or air

Speak to my conscience

what’s lost

what’s won

I’ll fight for this love

gu-gung

gu-gung

Sweat on my shoulder

blades shines

and slides

Sopping up mem’ries

of truth,

of tides

We’ve won this battle

it’s old

it’s young

or stuck in our minds

gu-gung

gu-gung
