Chain stitch

do you love your life
Not in a cliche, tv, sleb, thoughtless way
Spouting the words without moving a cell.
I mean do you wonder at how it all works
How blood rushes round 
Turning blue as it flows
How the synapses crackle and spark in the gloom
And the air moves with purpose
And energy burns

I flicker, I shiver, I hum and I haw
I shift between love and complete disbelief
Was this what I had dreamed of when I was 15
When the world was wide open
And I walked so straight

Then they smile, mix their words, pull a face, turn a curl
Sing my songs, use my words, say my name
And I feel my cells bend as they try to seep through
I love my life, my life fired up in you.
