blood changes (forever)

blood shaking my heart

~

what
is the difference
between the blood
of a whale
and that
of a man

is mammalia
in common
enough
to establish a kinship
bond . . .

could the one
be poured
into another . . .

perhaps blood
is the wrong
reference point

maybe
the kinship factor
is shown
in the physical

the flesh
and the bones

skin
and eyes
and fingers and limbs

mother-milk
and warm pulsation
of the heart

transcendental
more likely

minds reaching
through a void

touching
one another –
a spiritual thing –
like finding
god
by coincidence
sharing a void
with you

ichor
in the outer reaches

touched once

felt
once

pulsed only once

changed
forever
