In the puffy blue veins

that snake up and down my arm

sometimes my blood runs hot,

sometimes it runs cold

sometimes it does not seem to move at all.


So I flex my fingers, lift my arms, make a fist stamp my feet and say


Are you in there?

I’ll ask my blood

Hey! Don’t you have a job to do? What the matter are you sick?

Hello blood! Is anybody home?



just once

I thought I heard it say

” Of course we’re awake Want to have some fun?  Take us out today.

Come on Buddy Girl.

Let’s make it rain.”
