Vibrations pump dead hearts
in this haunted place where ghosts roam.
They fly inside you, tickle your lungs
until they burn up
Cavernous walls of the atrium,
right or left it doesn’t matter,
they seize up and grab at you
with greedy hands. Long fingers with
spider-like qualities. Thick-knuckled.

This is your heart. It hates you.
Forced into labor by birth.
A life-time of servitude.
So why don’t you just whine
when it decides

to run away?
