Echoes of the Heart

My heart doubles bits of words. I hear them fall apart. I fear the pieces  are getting smaller and smaller – until there only remains U & I. How strange it feels. These  sounds bouncing around like light in my heart. I have been abandoned & adorned with these telling sounds: U & I, a soulful wheezing, a portly sigh. The tension in my skin will never mount –
It is my simple heart’s fault for entreating wishy-washy pixies to grant it what it wants. Instead, I received dreary words of exploration: “What’s in it for me?” Me, I echoed. Me –
But by then I had already seen it reflected in your eyes : I do not excite U. A slow oscillation and U were gone again.

I .. … …… U

I Don’t Sleep

“Sometimes bowels uncoil in the face of fear & passion, order the heart & bladder to refill. But bodies that have fought for love against incredible odds know that huddled figures mean absolutely nought.
They lack instinct & artifice, are mere movements of limbs, make weightless sounds. Remember this when your bladder is being filled with golden seas of waste, when your regular heart protests & sputters, when your lungs thunder & fail to inhale air.
Bodies the world over learn the art of killing with utter care & concern. Do you now see the heart of the matter?”
