Body

Imagine if this body was
more than just a canvas for
our borrowed tribal patterns
and favourite quotes;
more than simply a hanger for
the latest bandwagon couture;
more even than a temple for
this month’s superfoods
and magazine-endorsed
workout regimes.
What if our body both
transmitted and received?
What if it was connected
into everything – a superfast
wifi to the universe?
And what if that communion
was for more than just banter?
What if it meant something?
Could change everything,
at the very deepest level?
Is that really so close to religion
as to merit its banishment?
