A Curious Girl

She is made out of my heart—

Worn as rib cage, read like story,

and

 

Traced back to

a curious girl.

Clutching a throat.

 

The last time I clutched so

was to throttle,

a washed-up weekend—

 

Unoccupied Lovers,

Making friends with the weekend—

Making donations to its end.

 

*Pause*

 

(Surely, I’ll drink my fill.)

 

{Like flash pictures in mobs,

Like flash pictures of sobs,

She cranks her heart to breaking;}

{But over-cranked, I was shaking.}

 

(Feeble pants of breath is my

Love thrown about a room.)

 

*Pause for effect*

 

Effect wasted on

a curious girl.

She lagged behind.

 

She was not who she claimed to be—

A washed-up weekend.

 

The Unoccupied Lover

I knew myself to be.
