Sodium

Sodium

A change is detected,

Forcing electric charges

Into long, branched canals

Where voltage spikes upwards

And a threshold is reached.

A nerve impulse has been born

Surging along the canals’ white walls

One wave after another,

A flood of electricity,

A tsunami of life.

 

The electric wave spreads infectiously

Through the canals’ white walls

To muscles, organs or bone

Spinning one of the many tiny cogs

Running the complex clock
