Poetry is electricity in words

by Kevin T McEneaney

We are all bio-electric beings.

There is a current leaping through our brains,

as there is in all cellular life forms

(discovered by Luigi Galvani

in 1780). Mary Godwin

was inspired to invent Frankenstein

who resembled her new husband Percy,

a fierce advocate of atheism

who thought life to be chemical action,

nearly being killed by an explosion.

Sometimes I feel a current in my toes;

electricity runs like a river

through all the cells in each of our bodies.

There is something electric about love…
