iceberg heart

iceberg heart
won’t melt fast enough

cracks appear
fissures form

corners sheer off
chunks fall off
lumps detach and float away . . .

and the hardest thing is
it happens again and again and again and again
and, by God,
it hurts.

poor iceberg

the only consolation is

there may be something locked inside the ice
that’s worth setting free.
