This muscle


babump babump

I can feel it

in my fingertips

babump babump

if it stops

flow of blood

no babump babump

other organs

cannot survive

without babump babump

will make me cold

and rigid

come back babump babump

fill my heart again


dVerse prompt is a quadrille using the word heart.


Another Heart


How many times can a heart be transplanted

If you pass the test and get the heart promising to live your life right

but that new heart doesn’t change who you are

and you end up killing others and  yourself anyway

promise me that you will pass that heart on to another with the stipulation

      that who ever passes the next test           to get the heart

will have to give it up for another

What is the life of a heart

that never gets old

as it goes into one person and out    and into another

How many lives can a heart go into and out of and still keep pumping

Another Heart
