Tell me, did you know? Did you know that the heart keeps beating without blood? Thump. Thump. Out of the body. Thump thump.

And perhaps you knew this when she reached inside of you. Thump. Thump. Twisting through muscles and cells, flesh to pull it out of you. Thump thump.

You thought you could feel her, that cool hand slithering around your heart. Thump. Thump. She gave it a gentle tug. Thump….

In death, you had no idea it was still pumping. Thump. Thump. And isn't it surprising that your heart outlived you, for so many years? Thump thump.

Thump thump.
