conscious

 

resusitate me

recite Enoch Arden

from memory

keep me conscious

sing Etta James

in tenor lullabies

awaken me

muse on Socrates

emergency revival

by philosophy

resurrect me

from paralysis

pluck my veins

like Cello strings

massage the heart

be the inspiration

a devotional antidote
