Humanimals

I know 
How you will speak
Before
You have spoken
I know how you 
Feel
Before the ice
Washes
Over your soul
I knew you
When you were
A child
I knew you 
When you
Were an animal
I knew how
You would 
Move
For the secret buttons
You think
You have hidden
The secret drum
Which resonates 
Within your soul
Is not so
Secret
We are all
Human animals
And animals
Of humans 
And we are all
Restricted 
limited
And freed
By the same 
Harmonious strings
Reverberating
And balking
At a world 
Which stood before us
Long before
Our stars
Ever
Thought
To twinkle
