This desire is almost
a biological imperative,
like the urge to blink
and breath.
Impossible to disregard,
it cannot be cancelled out
or entirely ignored, itís
grip tenacious and tender.

It is a benign virus
swimming through
the bloodstream, this
warm ocean that crashes
into the heart.
Itís symptoms similar
to Class As, excitement,
perceptions heightened, music
in the fingertips, the world
glowing.
