ACTION POTENTIAL

This is it
this is 
it—this is it
I know it,
exactly—when I say 
I'll say
I'm saying 
I'll say it—Action! Then Bam!

on just about any 
old cold Tuesday 
snowsleepy morning—Epinephrine! 
Make way!

Shiny skinny pretty
monochrome 
chains of—adrenaline! 
come slam-
dunking incautiously 

romping,
shimmy 
shammy 
whammy-
shake—jangling down the frayed

and confused 
ends of 
a pile of lillywhite dendrites

and—just like that; heck
I'm awake,
and I'm here,
and I'll stay,

to fight—the same day 
back 

out of
plain sight again.
