a heart (poem)

Colored pencil drawing of two women with heart heads




a heart


probably one donated to science

heart the metaphor exits scene

psyche the metaphor can’t object

she hadn’t needed heart, heart wasn’t feeling

psyche without heart’s part thrives yet

raises finished things she’s knitted

furnished with both fiber and fat

names them, explains them, discards them in their slots

heart sent abroad to man the guard-box

heart assigned alone to stand

where executions might be greenlit

by phone, heart to intervene

on heart’s own wisdom heart to trounce

a giant ego, a Philistine




a heart

Stylized photo collage of zoomed social media imagesDrimoct
















(2020, Stephanie Foster)
