Cleft Heart Back (1999)

I've sewn my cleft heart back from two pieces to one along the same cut track....

I’ve sewn my cleft heart back
from two pieces to one
along the same cut track

I’ve sewn it with wire and tape
and fixed it firm with drywall screws

(All this I do for you) I say
when I say it I am forced by a spun weight
an ellipse strength which gravities these words as globes
to repeat it again, again
until it blends, a recipe for chanting

It will hold
this one held heart shape
made from more than one (two)
and in the listening the listener can derive the formula
made secret by my drone

the anti-dote to alleviate these tide together sacks
of the the forever repetition only they together know
