April 11: In case of ______

“In Case of Chest Pains”

remember
this is not a heart attack
this is your heart’s hand raised with something to say
and if it folds you over and lays you out
stay
and listen for the sound
of that long overdue monologue whispered with devastating erudition

in case of chest pains
remember
you will not die
this cardiac arrest is your
truth speaking
and it shall set you free and give you life
