Spare and Found Parts – Christine E. Ray

you may have
my heart
I do not
need it
anymore
I have replaced it
with clockwork
elegant
diamond hard
it ticks faithfully
reliably
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
intend
to ever bow or
bend
again
to the charms
whims
of mercurial lovers
