The Biology of a Response

it’s amazing how I respond
to colours and shapes
as a primal response to the sun
pleasure spreads in waves
as a primal response to the dark
grey black screams a warning
on alert my muscles tighten
and tingle
as a primal response to the hunt
small sparks trigger
bright intelligence
asks my fingers to explore
I am a driven thing
