An Unpolished Heart (for John on our 10th Wedding Anniversary)

Wish I had
a polished heart,
all sweetness, light
and butterflies.
This is not my heart.

Ratty, scraggly,
broken, scarred,
patched –
this being Alaska,
with duct tape.
This is my heart.

Thank you
for handling
my imperfect,
unpolished heart
with care
and love.
