Suicidal Heart

heart of my heart looks for a way out

this body so ungrateful for it’s many years

of uninterrupted service,

my heart looks out from my stoop

skips a beat boom boom out go the lights

syncopated rhythm, desire beats all

making one last run for it my heart out doing

summersaults on the lawn runs through the sprinkler

joins the circus swinging on the flying trapeze

shot out of the of the cannon it goes

it goes and it goes gathering the dark,

tucking itself in for eternity, waiting in my car.
