The Contradiction

“i’ve got a romantic’s heart
strapped inside of a cynic’s chest
and nowhere near the courage
to do anything about it.
everyday, i go to war with a body

that gives like the trussel
on an old sewing machine,
and write soliloquies
to the seam of my ribs,
all because i am too afraid
to lift my shirt
and actually
touch it.”
