The Hateful Heart
a poem by Alice B. Clagett, 2016
Here is the spoken poem: https://youtu.be/M6ovFr3j3lQ
The hateful heart needs no
As it's always patrolling ...
Looking for someone to love it,
Though it has no love to give. It
Prowls Earth like velociraptor,
Looking for love 'ever after'.
When it finds it, it will eat it!
Then, looking for another sweet, it
Moans and groans,
Until it owns:
There is no love,
Unless you feed it!
