Deuteronomy 19: In Writing

Expand and contract
follow the pulsing arteries
the beating blood
run, run, from the heated heart.

Redeem your blood
redeem your cells
redeem the membranes 
between your fingers
between knuckles and nails,
redeem what fell,
what you could not hold,
gather it all back in
within the walls

to that primal bound
that first line
before you were you
where self and mother
were one
