Circulation

Cold
Feet.
Heartbeat.
Heel then toe.
Muffled footfalls, slow
To sound, die within the wet wood.

Heel,
Toe.
Come, go.
Dying tread
Muffled sound, then dead
Stop. Heart not beating as it should.

One,
Two.
Each shoe
Falling twice.
Heel, toe - still suffice
To prompt the muffled heart to beat.

Beat,
Heart.
Impart
To each heel
Bloodsap. Let them feel
Each muffled slap the toes complete.
