heart monitor

My fickle heart erratically seeks a conventional beat
A tiny redbird fluttering against its bone cage
Stifled by the overload
from grey feral matter flexing claws,
Stretching down and scratching across the mass of
Heart strings
Tucked between
click, record, register and restrain
Smothering any kindlingfuel
Quiet now, quiet now still, still
The tiny redbird wings flicker feeling the feline scuffle
Against the block I wear
A heart monitor between my ribs
