When My Heart Is Clean

I sit alone in my room, criss cross legs on the frameless mattress.

No music or sounds, save for the traffic and the murmurs in other apartments.

I close my eyes, and try to imagine being an angel whose feet never touched the ground.

I try to imagine all my atoms returning to the furnace a star, that then goes nova, and becomes another person a million light years away.

I don’t even dream of love now, for love and sex turn to lead that which is weightless; your heart.

And sex is just another way we abuse each other.

I can touch the sky when my heart is clean, when I  return to before I knew faces or hurtful words.

I open my eyes, and I am among stars.

No one, and nothing, can touch me here.

“I heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Life seems harsh, and cruel. Says he feels all alone in threatening world. Doctor says: “Treatment is simple. The great clown – Pagliacci – is in town. Go see him. That should pick you up.” Man bursts into tears. “But doctor…” he says “I am Pagliacci.” Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.”———-Rorschach
