sometimes you just go for it

muscles atrophy from disuse.
never forget that
your heart is a muscle.

of course i mean your
figurative heart, that
cartoon beating and swooning,
breaking and bursting.

in a poem, the literal
and the figurative can blur.
and people have literally died
from their figurative heart breaking.

it’s easier to keep going
than to restart.
but do what you must.
