all at once

by amy sharp


I think there are three ways a heart can beat. 
Dangerously.
With wonder. 
And fast like a rabbit.

And sometimes if you are very lucky, it can all happen at once and you do not die. 
You live and your body shakes and you can remember what if felt like to be born and the sun is coming out of your mouth and you are a messy painting. A silver song.
