Replacement

I remember the way you came in.

 

With the efficiency of an assassin,

you momentarily

stopped the passing

of blood cells

to brain cells,

 

you momentarily

kept them

rushing

and revolving

around

one

unreasoning

part

I call my heart

 

You momentarily

made me think

that you were

better

than that other assassin

that almost killed me.

 

But you never were,

You never will be.
