Heart Surgery (rough draft)

You will break my heart.
You will break my heart and I will let you.
I will let you crack open
the right atrium from the left,
rend the aorta from the pulmonary valve.
You will tear it all out,
dividing my hearts’ parts, veins in one pile
and arteries in another.

Why will you do this? Because
you were always so good
at carrying things out of my heart.
You never seemed to understand
that putting something in was also important.

I’ll be out of town this weekend – internet may be spotty – so I might not be able to post anything! Be back soon!
