the heart does not care

The heart does not care

it breaks and leaves

like a door opened

to the evening breeze

rushing through and then gone

as a moment

of intense movement

heartlessly, artlessly

caring and then leaving,

breaking. Then silence

once more resumes

until dishes, car horns,

clatter back in the wake,

but heart does not care,

it breaks and leaves the broken moment

for the whole body to bear.
