My Heart is a Hunted Software – Julia Wohlstetter

No tongue may shame you as you fall,

No heavens shake your brain wreath.

Stand the length of the house:

Flourish your wink,

Pirate a winter,

Try an idol but scissor

No precious minutes.

My saucy bark,

Torment me graciously

With your vest

And sportive blood—

My heart is a hunted software—

A death for the poem wolf.
