Lightweight

Heavy hearts
are easy to carry. Especially
when tethered to fake smile, tight schedules,
acquaintances and elusive laughter. Douse it a little
with alcohol to bolster its ignition. Dance
to the glory of the flames.
They will brighten the
cold night  . . . your
night. For a moment.

quiet. quiet. quiet.

Heavy hearts sink lower
into bed, soaked in poker face
flavoured tears.
