Paper mache heart


Crying in sleep 

To the drumbeat 

Paper mache heart

Empty yearning

Glued together parts

The thrill of false bonding

Unraveling a paper mache heart

Hollowed-out oyster

Nothing left to spill

Fake laughter

Sautee the paper mache heart on the grill

Nothing real feels real

The sky may not really be blue

The pinch doesn’t help to feel

Enter the paper mache heart queue

The chambers achingly pulsate

There is no other deal

But to march on

With a paper mache heart
