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
