Alpha and omega of all human
life, the phenomenal unsung hearth from
without which no spark of mental fusion
can light life’s fleeting equilibrium.

Words on this page only appear because
an unceasing, unseen evolution
through eons of nature’s singular laws
has wrought a being of dazzling function.

From the foot’s engineering miracle,
through intermingling of sex, pleasure and
procreation, to the wondrous bundle
of heart, lung, brain, and to the untold gland,

to name a few, the body electric
is here now alive in thankless magic.
