goodbye heart

by Jason Alan

my head is not the earth

but I reel from the stars around it

my brain is a cloud of dust

a drop of dry, tasteless rain

my mouth is void of all words


my heart is on its way

to the train station

on the other side of town

it is leaving me

thinking clearly is a thing of the past

feeling any emotion at all

is a task which I cannot perform

goodbye, heart. goodbye.
