My heart

The ink-stained sheet
The bathroom stall with Mike was here sharpied onto its back
The candle in the fireplace
The mermaid in the painting at the dump being rained on
The octopus in the Aegean stalking a snail
The plane window turning white as it flies through a cloud: the blue on the other side
The library book whose index card is filled with crossed out names
The ukelele with a broken string the homeless man plays
The strand of white lights around the window, the window
The imprint the lying girl leaves in the grass after staring at the stars
That home with a hole in the ceiling-- that bucket catching each drop
The abandoned rail road track the coyotes follow at night
The deck of cards missing a queen
The ceiling at Grand Central
