After Pascale Petit

I found out where
my heart is that heโ€™s
cut out with his tiny scissors. He stitched
it to a t-shirt with her
name on.

Back

in New York they spend the weekend together,
wandering down avenues that all look the
same. She wears the t-shirt, picks the seams
like a puffy pink itch.
