Imagine for a moment
what it feels like
to have heart shaped razors
dancing a tango through your stomach.
Does it hurt?
Not nearly as much as it should.
Now think of a hope
no a regret
same thing so it doesn't matter-don't hurt yourself.
Calmly set them both-or none-ablaze.
Don’t bother calling the Stoutsville Fire Department
it’s far too late now.
Think of the bright side, friend!
Now you have a book end
although it doesn't serve much purpose
we can look at it together.
So what do you say?
Next weekend-same time?
I'll bring the heart shaped razors
now you try to swallow them.
