What have I taken into this body

a living thing

a body of cells in a capsule

does my cell have a soul

is that drop of blood

is that flake of skin

still breathing


can I be encapsulated

how quickly does the light


when a rose stem is cut

when the curly head of lettuce is torn from the root

when a grape shrinks away from the sun.
