bring something out of you
like an old fashioned train

get to a certain age
and you get walked over
the heart sounds are drowned

a revving up engine
something about sounds you can distinguish
pieces of sound

snap shots
pictures on a heartbeat
over the clavicle

that’s a normal heartbeat
a rough murmur
a train going along a welded rail

diddley dee
how does your heart sound?
ah diddley da

the drum in my ear
jungle drums
a steam train

how does your heart
when it’s aching?
