Souvenir

On my left wrist, an inky black heart;
It pulses           grows to life like a swollen balloon,
and sucks death inwards
with every beat of its counterpart.

A souvenir from Spain;
It bulges          swells like an embryo embedded accidentally,
flattens like an empty belly,
a black stain on white flesh.


Souvenir appeared online with Cultured Vultures magazine.
