Shard-Heart

Once
a
lostlove
showed
me
the
marvel of
ghost stars

And ere we
fell
from our
lofty perch
atop
the
iron-arrogant
oak

I
heard
a
catbird
sing

And
the song:
it
broke my
stupid
heart
to
sorry
regrettable
pieces.

She

She
    writes
          stories for the hopeless
    sings
          songs for the heartbroken
     dances
           magnificent ballets 'pon bleeding feet
She
     imprisons
           the universe in lozenges of glass
     teaches
           wee savages to read and think
     lights
            fuses, blowing your mind to kingdomcome
She
     fucks
            all of this shit up, like a boss
     steals and destroys
            everything you once held holy
     touches
            your face and usurps your belief in God.
