Battle Medicine

Your heart’s machinery
must be a mess 
of soldiers
all on the same side
trying to keep formation
but breaking rank
with increasing 
when one goes assassin
and the rest spend 
their energy
no one speaks 
to this as admission 
leads to admonition
so all keep quiet
and steadfast
each illustration
of your broken heart
coming quicker than the last
