THIS IS WHAT MY HEART SOUNDS LIKE 2.21.17

 

 

My heart sounds

like a sack of potatoes

hitched to a lever and pulley,

controlled by a restless child,

hoisting, letting go, and each time

he lets go the potatoes slam

into a plot of dirt.

Written at midnight, in my bedroom, in Agoura Hills CA, on a shattered iPhone 6 Plus.
