SENSED THOUGHT

Within the body’s imaged presence
a kinesthetic awareness

Thought imbued sensation
there anywhere

Desire’s first trace
in the fingertips

A tremor of anger
a twinge of jealousy

pride’s stiffening
the wavering of ignorance

All first felt
in the fingertips

Felt
and released

Felt
and imbued

with a dim
awareness that wants

That insists
That spreads through the fingers

hands and arms,
reaching back

into the body,
quickening with the nerves

swirling
with the blood

Till the whole body
enthralled

cannot step back
from the most human of poisons

flooding
our brain

Willing us
to act

Even against
our will
