Heart Roulette

Heart Roulette

Heart Roulette


What is a man, a woman?
Spin, spin the wheels of life
hotter than a hundred Hiroshimas
the furnace of the human heart
Eros and Thanatos combined
this cosmic will made flesh
and given time to love or kill
not out there in the universe
in the sights of a telescope
the big bang, point of origin
but in us each, primed
the muscle lethal loaded
smoking, palpitating tubes
of blood these carnal guns
lifted to take aim, careless
blindfold in the hand of God
head bowed, deep breath
you are bullet, arrow
love and death.
