Spiral notebook

Let's open our notebooks and review:

The heart is a muscle.
Muscles have filaments, they produce force
and motion

and in that marvelous force and motion
true things come unearthed
and facts can vanish;

each filament with its own amazing ability
can create or destroy,

flood with joy today
and rage tomorrow--

the possibilities are endless.

The heart's blind and deaf, only

knowing its pulses--ardor and qualm,

dismay, aplomb,

some of which are crimes

and some are cheered on.
