First Cut

I split my heart in two.

For you.

This is no mean feat

It isn’t just cutting meat.

There is a hacking, a gnawing

A cracking of what was whole

And I have become a child again

Learning to use these new organs

Uncertain whether I should have made the first cut.

A sliver may have been wiser

Less to chew. Unlikely to choke.

A girl with two hearts

Is a bit of a joke.
