Hot

I went looking for you today
I found pieces of you, strewn about town
I found your brain pickling in formaldehyde in the college lab
I found your heart in the lemon cart at the downtown market
I found your soul in the dime bin at the back of the novelty store
All far, far away from that body of yours
That I still find,
unwittingly,
in the gallery of my mind.
