The Song of a Species

She played,
They played,
I played,

The tune of the sea,
The glee of a flea,
The bleat of a sheep,

He played,
They played,
I played,

The soundless breeze,
The dark blue of the moon,
The subtle shift of the mood,
The sudden absence of the sun,
The panicked beat of the heart,

They played
She played,
He played,
I played,

The song of the departed,
The silence of the living,
The howl of the spirits,
The calm inside the storm,

We played,

The song of love,
Flesh on flesh,
Mouth to teat,
The beginning of a new life,

The song of a Species.
