studious

you could
attach
jumper cables
to my
heart and
power a
remote
village
from the
anxiety in
an acidic halo
of near panic
whispering
softly in
willowy
undertones
under my
frantic
pulse

enslaved by these
feverish desires
the devil’s heartbeat
thunders deeply in
my papermache chest
i am torn to shreds
in the divine chaos
rattling the chains
tethering my soul
to a realm of studiously
indifferent emptiness

      1. Oh… well, I simply love the thought of paper mache holding the heart (beats…) I’ve heard of paper hearts in poems but for the body to be the fragile paper around the heart as you wrote, was really a stand out for me.
