狭心症

fun (2)when i cried, yelled, withdrew
my heart was in my hands, within my elbow’s crease, on the top of my head
swirling
shoved at you

when the doctor said
oh –there is actually something wrong with your heart
i did not release my hands from their guard for eight hours
my arms wrapped around me for days

it is funny
only after i knew it was broken
did i start to want it
to keep me alive
