Show me all your bruises, I know everybody wears them.
They broadcast the pain, how you hurt, how you reacted.
Did cancer take your child? Did your father have a heart attack?
Have you ever had a moment forced the whole heart to grow or retract?
Or just shrink?
Does the heart shrink?
Tell me everything, tell me everything you know.
Were you told as a child how cruel the whole world could be?
Did anybody ever tell you that?
It never gets old.
