Sign Away Your Heart


His Honesty Clause   

In the event of loss 
or theft
or disposal, I propose
your heartstrings
will cease to exist,
be left
exactly
as before.

  1. This is poignant, quietly powerful. Also, I believe heartstrings are never the same after being plucked. Wonderful.

  2. I think you did write a little of both. Clever take on this prompt, Linda.
