He said we have time

He said we have time
He should have said a ‘no’ before time stepped in

I wanted him to break my heart
while it was whole and lissome
and not save it till the warranty expired

(he doesn’t know
I love the thrum of broken strings
that aimless fingers make)

and sunder the pieces so far apart
that between us there would be a river
slow at first
then leaping past

and others would follow
and align themselves on either side
trying to make a map
but the frayed pieces alone would have
shored up a bank

and in that lively gush between
would be the best rush we ever had
watching a robust love go/flow free
