Poetry Corner: "It is There"

"It is there"

i am transparent.
on my sleeve my chest is carried
as an soul deep open armed full of
wonder and uncomplicated rhythm of an heart.
and it beats.
miraculously, it still beats. it has a rhythm that is
dedicated to life and movement and moments that
have left me breathless. and it still feels
under cold sheets and bare cotton
under quiet acoustics of soft snores and hard sleeping
with eyes held heavy from the light of the moon,
i am alone.
with this big old heaviness resting on my sleeve
with this unbelievable passion that finds zest and zeal
rigor and rigormortis, i have seen it rise and fall
beat and flatline, whole and broken
i wear it.
transparently.
it is
there.
