the heart is an organ

unless you are a poet

a songwriter

a hormonal teenager

the forlorn wife in Love Actually

my freshman year roommate Ron

my friend, the painter. we’ll call her Mary

ever since that idiot boyfriend of hers left

mom when dad had to find work abroad

because of some gluttonous bankers in 2008

dad after grandma died

grandpa after grandma died

or anyone who is not a surgeon
