amputation of a heart

a beat-less love
i could always say my heart skipped a beat
when it was already under lock and key
had to roll up my sleeve
to avoid getting blood on it
the head chef said to toss out
bad meat
so, there went my forearm, wrist and teeth.
that was for last week
not paying my rent on time
of affection and singing chimes
this love has me head over heels
kicking the stool beneath.
