Are they calls
to take up careers, to market ourselves,
or to give flesh to the body becoming,
to begin a telling of who we are?

What Who, what What calls?
Some angel we wrestled in soul’s
dark midnight before first light ever?
Some sketch we roughed out on a scroll?

What signs can tell we heard the call?
What scars bear witness that we answered?
