Spare and Found Parts – Christine E. Ray

Christine Ray – Reinforced

Brave & Reckless

you may have
my heart
I do not
need it
I have replaced it
with clockwork
diamond hard
it ticks faithfully
beneath my ribs
never a flutter
nor a cry
does it utter
I hold fast
to my spine
so lately reinforced
with razor wire
steel rods
I do not
to ever bow or
to the charms
of mercurial lovers
