Hole-Heart Boy

http://img13.deviantart.net/148b/i/2007/325/a/4/hole_in_my_heart___by_yin_yang_completed.jpg

into a library of toxins

enter the hole-heart boy

 

on a guanine dice-roll or a meiotic card-shuffle

or god’s fingers poking a womb

 

“don’t we have it lucky?”

“isn’t it such a shame?

 

the scalpel-cut of prejudice is cold and it is vain

numbed by ignorance and lidocaine

 

the struggle makes the matriarch

crave the pethidine and the dark

 

but dear, this is a love that beat the odds

making a mother of invention and improbability

 

damn them to the narrowlands and live

you more-whole-heart-than-them boy
