thrust ── so the pitter-patter in all this heart-blush arteries swiftened with
blood & reshape the shrunken marrow thus blossoming organelles within it
& not forget ours fingers outstretched mapped-out to vein statics &
pierced through God’s ripe abdomen do with it within its fluid abundance
once bodiless ─ an idea
is to carry off with it swiftly
