Lisa Mary Armstrong - Stone Heart


The serpent recoils

Arranging her lithe form into

A treble clef

Quaking in her sheafed skin

She blows a silent O

Cupid’s bow at the ready

He knows where to aim his deadly arrow

She knows his fickle love won’t last

  

And so, she turns him to stone

So that her heart can keep on beating

An eternal revolution
