Song of bagpipes

Bumps along genetic material
herald change in the form of
tom-tom beats
and blown unicorn horns

Listen: as skin gathers
something like grace takes shape
of rivers converging

An ancient truth squeezes
its way to form whatever fits
into a new fist
so it can be dropped again

My sweetheart knows
wind will not stay on the hilltop
and our dance shifts with the sun
