And if they take your heart away,
what will you do then?

Live on the edges
where the stars are still being born.

Or wander on metro trains for days,
buying water in bottles from convenience stores,
think this is life now.

Travel, and watch exotic insects
emerge from the mouths of exotic flowers.

Remain, where these filaments of love remain,
the love you gave,
the home they gave you in return,
although they did not mean to.

For a few instants longer.

Watch as, slowly, they take your heart away.
