Two Hundred and Sixty-Nine.

Why is it that a heart feels so much like a fist? That a pump and a punch are so closely intertwined in our imaginings? Thrusting out of our ribcages; little spring-loaded boxing gloves.

I’ve got the most amazing magic trick
just close your eyes, count to fifty
and I’ll disappear forever!
You’re going to need to give me a coin
I’ll make that disappear, too.
Actually, while you’re at it, might as well be your wallet
maybe your car
and just for the purposes, of the trick,
maybe your wife, too
Are you ready?
Boy, this is going to blow your mind!
Okay, close your eyes
start counting
nice and slow
don’t peek, now
You’re going to get the surprise
