POEM: The Starved Heart
the starved heart beats

till it can no more

in ashes on

the cutting floor

while all around

its maker’s mark

glows sullen, leaden

in the dark

this darkest wine

this nameless vow

the one release

from ‘I’ and ‘thou’

can liberate

from liberty

the thingless face

we dare not see

the evidence

we can’t permit

the crime on which

all others sit

the sin from which

All others start;

to feed the belly

starve the heart
