a healthy soul
fits on my palm
is light
springs back when I
probe it with my
fingernails.

your soul is black.
necrotic tissue
surrounds it.
when I hold it,
it oozes down
between my fingers
and drops its stink
onto the linoleum floor.

they say a black soul
can only come about
through black magic.

i do not believe
in black magic.

but a heart
as bewitched as yours
must be cursed
somehow.

i think maybe you just
loved too hard.
got tired,
i guess.

died of it.
