before the plague

we touched flesh      long ago
                       once                           among so many last things
.   
        heart’s entwined among the tubular cells

  .                 networks sounding

  .                                  a cross between thought and flesh

                      non-dual appendages
……………………               fragments of intelligence

.                  grafting’s lower down the matrices
.                          where sonic pleasures
      .                                still vibrate

causal chains releasing fingers

.                                               children still walking in the garden

.                        lost among the foliage
