SHADOW ON THE HEART
We’re in a hospital
going around touch the ground
no patients staff sit everywhere
alike tables amounting to steam.
Staff walk everywhere
late nights bad ideas
you want to order?
I’m not eating remember
Brick Lane antiques
bottom floor coffee
in the dark it was a decent
place to fall for shiny things.
A. she hasn’t lived our life
so she just doesn’t understand.
B. different chambers of course, septum
the dividing wall is what she’s like.
C. why care?
Thank you for waiting
sorry about the wait
sorry about that. Our fault
old computers bad habits.
They got held up this morning
a peculiar case a sweetheart.
Is that a species known to be friendly? Tiger goldfish
eat plastic soldiers. New women come to relieve
those and their friends gently ushered away.
Where do they take the receiving chambers
for a walk on the beach for a day in the sun
for a break from the blood flowing through.
