Lab by lab, hearts torn

from ribs and shorn

of surface cells turn gel

pale, bare flan in the hands

of Science. White organs

like beached sea creatures,

small hunted whales, Cordelias.

 

by Therese L. Broderick

NOTE: This piece was inspired by a NOVA television show about growing body organs.
