HEART
by Ted Richer




1.


I give you my heart, she said.


. . .


I give you my heart and my soul, too.


. . .


I give you my body she said:


. . .


My love and my life, too


. . .


I give to you.


. . .


I take your body, I said.


2.


I gave you my heart, she said.


. . .


I gave you my heart and my soul, too.


. . .


I gave you my body she said:


. . .


My love and my life, too


. . .


I gave to you.


. . .


I took your body, I said.


3.


Oh, you have my heart, she said.


. . .


No, I have my own heart, I said.
