    There, within the fertile soil
    lies my beating heart
    Beaten, not broken, it toils

    Hear the sounds of life
    this breathing metronome holds
    dreams, love, secrets… mine!

    i mean….

    you are red
    and pump
    my blood
    through my bod.


  • Barry Prospect

    My poor troubled heart
    you work hard that i might eat
    ice cream every day

    organ made of blood

    elastic dreams and tissue

    not the Kleenex kind
