Where you go….

“Where you go, I will follow.”

Sounds, caused by vibrations of
two mucus membranes in his throat
Air, expelled from His lungs
carried over his teeth and tongue
To form words
Constructed by Letters
Arranged into patterns that Ears
Interpret as words

As soon as the words left his mouth
He could feel the pull of the Earth
on His feet….

The arcane infusion of meaning to
what was spoken
encoded on those sounds
By His cerebrum
They imply intent
Inject and carry

As if the last words of a spell, spoken
with power and conviction. Grounded
Him forever…

The fingerprints of His Heart
Upon His declaration
Evidence of Things like
Truth, Loyalty, Devotion
Compassion, Love
Transformation of
Intent into Action

Wax coated feathers, drop to the ground
despite their distance to the sun
Spared the fall to the ocean…

Rods and Cones in
bystanding Eyes
transform light bounced
back from reflective surfaces
Originating  from a Star
93 million miles away
Denotes Color, texture
posture, facial expressions

Gravity will rule His world now
He’ll look to the Skies and know that
they are so very far out of reach

Smooth muscles
Stretch and contract
perfect rhythm
Micro Lightning Strikes
His brain has learned to Ignore
Sacred Ground to a Poet
a Biogenetic Engine
a Machine interfacing with
The Ghost that Haunts it.

…But every sunrise. He’ll stretch out
His hand and touch
The painted clouds…anyway.
