Frogheart mitosis

Even though skin still intact, if no longer alive
throw them back: these deaths have a way
called the frogheart-thump
Beneath sheets in the morning how one
the night before multiplied hundreds
Beneath Egyptian cotton they pulse
on your toes, ankles those hearts come
back to life, wearing such thin skin:

cold & wet, how you can you tell
What’s dead
when they always felt that way
