Rubies

Water…(Clarity)

hard, calcification of the heart space

better for her body, but he was calling

flow against the currents of heartbreak

cascade of lessons, she knows she needs more

.

.

Wine…(Clotting)

veins bubbling underneath the
surface, the heart races

pigeons’ blood display of truth,
of her wished, her actual, worth

to swirl spit and seek expensive
tags for the sake of a better taste

sediment rests after a temporary
lift of spirits, heavy at the bottom
