Let's Make ATP

you are the eukaryotic cell
and I am the mitochondria

in some stage of evolution
you ingested me whole
but did not consume me

now I survive, in endosymbiotic
relation to you, the host

anerobic before I joined you,
I am your emotional powerhouse

in the presence of oxygen
the love we make provides
energy for the both of us
