Metal Heart

On a pendulum

Swings a heart

Coiled metal

Fused in swirls and shapes

I cannot yet decipher

.

In the shapes I see

I think I see

Words reaching out to me

Telling me

What to think

As the hot metal on the pendulum beats

.

I wonder

Should I share

What I have read

With the world

On lock it deep

In the deep pictures

Of the locket

.

It swings

Hitting the inner skull

Trying from there

To get to the mouth

To escape

Into the chill air

.

To freeze into place

Onto the paper trail of

My life

Stretching behind me

For my eternity
