Show stealer, heart stopper
unknown

You sew superstitions into
 1
a dead man's arm while
 2
I use my phone to play the radio,
 3
neither of us fans of Coltrane
 4
but too tired to change the tune.
 5
 
 
"Don't poke holes in his tattoo,"
 6
I say, not liking the shape of
 7
the neat row of gaps that
 8
pepper his Praying Mary's cheeks.
 9
 
 
"He has bad veins," you explain.
 10
"And besides, he's a corpse."
 11
I debate reminding you even
 12
walls have ears and a memory
 13
for particular brands of unkindness.
 14
 
 
There's a man in a helmet breaking
 15
the foundations of his body, cracking
 16
each rib until the cage door flies free.
 17
Is the heart a bird? Or is it a
 18
donkey: doomed to be small stubborn
 19
and load-bearing till the end
 20
of The Train's walk down
 21
the F-sharp major scale?
 22
 
 
"Stop, no," I gasp, more out of breath
 23
than I have a right to be. "You're
 24
butchering the melody."
 25
Undeterred, your hands
 26
and time
 27
and the band
 28
march on.
