Natural History

We are bone, love, we are earth,
Our breathing slows and we are stone.

We are flesh, love, we are spirit,
Our eyes close and we are mineral.

We are burial places, love, we are fire,
When we kiss the ice ages recede.

We are half lives, love, missing links,
When we touch the earth grows fecund.
