as far as you know,
you will never have another heart.
better to grow the one you were born with.

let the strange world sneak inside.
accept all of life in your chest.
death is the end of percussion.

will laugh & kiss back. god is strong
in the clock of your desire.
every tick, my friend, divine
confirmation: you are alive. beat. yes!
you are alive
