She said she was all she’ll ever have so she’ll have it all.
I watched her tear through skin like unbuttoning a shirt;
Reaching into her rib cage and wrapping her fingers
Around her heart as if it were an overripe plum, she plucked it.
She said, ‘You see this? This is the universe, this messy little thing. Watch.’
Jaw unhinged, she swallowed her heart whole
And looked me in the eyes as she licked her fingers of the taste.
She laughed and asked me if I was afraid, I nodded.
A pause, she sang, ‘That’s God’s doing.” And laughed again.
Breath ceased to sustain, a heartless body in front of me.
Her eyes rolled into the back of her head
And every hair on my body stood as if she were an inch away.
She smiled, cocked her head to the side and sighed. ‘So easy.’
I closed my eyes and breathed in, the air redolent of sulfur.
A cold hand touched the side of my neck
And breath burned my ear.
