There's such a small difference
Being alive and living.
Serotonin, acetylcholine, peptides
The Radio Free Human
Broadcasting within our borders.
The taste of copper in the mouth,
The adrenaline voice of hysteria,
Action, movement, defense, retreat.
The endorphins smile us back to joy and trembling,
Washing us in pleasures.
Every day we're dancing by the no-light of the new moon.
Surprised at what we think we see.
Colors, shapes, feelings
We are legion.
Reflections of a shimmering light
Like the billion crystal suicides of snowfall
On a dark, not freezing night.
Chain reactions in the mad scientist's laboratory
That flows through the galaxy inside us.
