Pulse

Pulse

Pressure waves
generated by the heart
scroll in electric lines
of steady or syncopated beats
when boundaries are pliable,
flatten out when confronted with a deadline.

A prompt compresses
vein against bone
leaving a sore spot,
purpling prose,
constricting ebb and flow.

Let the fluid wash through,
the tension surge and throb,
auscultation induced
by physiologic demand
rather than the workshop’s
cinching hand.
