THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE BROKEN HEART

for EAS



Where did my broken heart go?
It seems to have disappeared.

I checked in the crumb-filled crevices of the couch.
It wasn't there.

I dumped everything out of my purse and searched my wallet.
It wasn't there.

I vacuumed up a tumble weed of dog hair in a corner.
It wasn't there.

I would have cut myself on the shards of glass if it had been in the couch.
I would have seen the glitter of glass if it had been in my purse.
I would have heard the shattered bits of glass as the vacuum cleaner sucked them away.

I suspect someone stole it and hid it where it can never be found.

His name is MY LOVE.

  1. I must say, all praise be to God, Janie. I saw the very tiny for EAS in the corner. Feels like Valentine!

  4. How sweet. I'm glad you can't find a broken heart anymore, because you don't have one.

    1. Thank you, Rita. Later this month, Elvis will meet The Hurricane. He'd better be prepared.
