Fire Biology

there's only one secret
the spirit loose in the body
glowing in the bones
fusing like a star
many-petalled fire biology

taking shape from gravity
I danced with my imaginary enemy
my beautiful friend, my patient lover
but there never was really any other
she was not she and I am not me

I can't quite find a way to express it
I don't see any differences
one heart apparently multiplied
the same light in every pair of eyes
I gave my life to avoiding it

awake through the dark until dawn
drugged insensory
tinnitus, anger and caffeine
straining against the mind's membrane
life support for the dying dream

I've known all my life what I have to be
the spirit loose in the body
glowing in the bones
fusing like a star
many-petalled fire biology
