this is a scavenger hunt

by Paul Koniecki

everything is borrowed time 
you are the mother
you are the compass
you are the skin of my own face

fish eggs and bat’s wings  
condor sperm and the tongues of 
myotonic goats  life  red honeycomb 
semi-clear ruby gelatin like warm gold

it took until the final line 
before i used the word love
