reduce. reuse. recycle.

When you say, “I will give you a new heart,”

you do not mean that you will throw away

the one I already have

like a totaled car or a broken dish.

 

For you, new is a word

that means returning something

to its original purpose,

restoring its former glory.

 

Which is why you make reusable hearts,

something good of your own hand.

an up-cycle, this heart,

re-purposed into a new love,

what it was always made for.
