You, Mighty You - Poem by fon tuma

You,
beautiful womb of man
singular seed of speed
first in a million cells
- that raced -
first come, first born,
first breath.
No 1 in contention with
your peers that passed.

You,
powerful you
constructed unique from
muscle to hair tissue; from
head to tail made a power-
station, electrical and even
nuclear - as in exploded in
anger, went nuclear. Electrons
and emotions, signals sent
and retracted.

You,
magestic you. Composed
Alpha
Amazonian
Bestial
Earth-loved
Sharp-teethed
Cannibal.

You,
above the weeds of death
the slave-ship stops her song
You,
anchored to the armada of love
splayed before the chopping board
and nothing was
You,
the blade came roaring down
Immaculate You was flower
for from the pool beneath,
a single white Rose stood trembling.
