primate heart

the primate heart
has four chambers
joy, sorrow,
anger
and fear

the healthy heart
flexes purpled walls
palpates to distribute its loads
for a more even beat

but the torn heart
marbled with scars
finds constriction .v. congestion
a painful equation

with safety valves blocked
it's a compromised exercise
till drowned in a red world of hurt
love makes monkeys of us all
