HEART PIE by David Mac

Offering 52 is now available: Heart Pie by David Mac.




beetles in your boudoir belch from your black liquid eyes

your heart’s a grey ashtray the shape of a skull


I have come here again with my bouquet of wilting flowers

I have come to lovingly break your neck


and you can hardly believe the words hissing from my mouthpiece

they are not the ones you expected


so, as I cross the room to find a vase, all that separates us is

the sound of tears from your eyes, and poison from mine
