30/30 Day 16-The Sound of my Heart

my heart clatters in my steel framed ribs

flaps loudly like a flock of sparrows

they chirp and clamor, and in the silence

you can hear them singing my secrets

whistling through my bones, a symphony

humming, rumbling over my body

and if you listen, in the silence

my heart will tell you everything, my love

and my pain
