Heart Or The Blood, Which Came First? - Poem by Chuy Amante

If my blood came first
what pumped it around?
If my heart came first
what did it do?

It seems really logical
and provable in a lab

that life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life
begets life begets life

did it start? does it end?
life seems to be timeless

Topic(s) of this poem: god, life, science
