Punch His Heart

Ladies and Gentlemen
you’ll find it bound up
in Bubble Wrap armor
stuffed away in a cupboard

Tear open here
and punch his heart
It will pound again
It will pound again

I don’t think
I thanked you enough
for all the music:

The White Lies
Zoot Woman
The National
Eels and his End Times

Often a word-for-word teller
of my 2009 to 2012 head space

That’s the thing, right?
It’s all about word choice
and timing

Express Mail
delivered nearly too late
or just on time

to punch his heart
so blood will bring
new oxygen to his

It will pound again
