It was there. It was in our hearts and lungs. The air and blood and the life, like in every living thing, we had it. But it slipped away, too fast for telling. Like everything that ever lived, it was there inside us. We felt it but there was nothing to hold to, no way to grab. And we lost it before we saw each others face. We heard for weeks and months the voices in our blood that spoke of things that were to be: cats, rabbits, birds, rocks, trees and sand. And everything the voices said about them. But the voices didn’t say what they would look like. You will know them when you see them, they said. You will know them when you smell them. Don’t worry about the shapes. You will know. And you will understand. Exactly what life was they did not explain.
