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
