"An Independent Beater" by Joe DiMino

Don’t know that one
Needs find new ways
Of growing;
After planted
And taken root,
Even the seeds
To follow
Have memories
(The examples shown them
A telling of many seasons;

Therefore, with no record
Of time standing still
Or ever a drop without
Upward and downward
Motion—I say, to 
Submit to a pause
Such as death
Is to deny
The independent evidence
Of One’s own 
Somatic heart.
