Cardio-Epithet - Poem by Heidi K. Haskell
Are easy to draw,
(Easy to break,)
And easy to throw away.
Are harder to draw,
(Prone to heart attack,)
And move blood through your body.
Defy the natural law:
They swell, shatter, quake,
Freeze, break, melt, sway,
Stop and start,
Gape like a hungry maw,
Wander and come back,
Are humble or maybe haughty.
When did lovey-dovery become the hallmark of the poet? We
Need to rethink this.
May no suitor of mine spout poetry
And expect a kiss.
Higher regarded by me are those
Who show their love by acts and prose.
