Replacement Heart

Tick-tock, tick-tock
Relentlessly counting down
The time I have left to live

Inside my chest, I no longer
Have a heart, instead inhabited by
A clock and I know how

Long I have left. 3 days
7 hours, 9 minutes, and
21 seconds. Tick-tock

A ticking time bomb
Hidden in my chest
Telling me. The rest of

My life counting down
I’m informed by
My Replacement Heart
