Jody Call

Drumbeats tonight and every night

Distant enough that you can lie to yourself

That it’s within you

Hypertense blood fleeing the pounding rhythm

Corpuscular refugees surge and rest, surge and rest,

Fading, flagging, carried in the current panic

Until depleted coming round again, again, again

To the drump, drump, drump

Of the remorseless heart and its everlong cadence,

Drum of the body politic, marking days gone and going
