Following your heart

is a brave act

that shouldn’t be brave. Should be as simple as

swallowing the tight knot of

fear in your throat

and cleansing your palate

of nerves. We shouldn’t have buds

in our tongues. It’d be easier

to not taste the bile

of expected regret

rising up your neck, scaling

its way to your sinuses,

filling your mind

with the smell

of what you’ve been

digesting.
