Lesson One

"Is your heart still broken, sir? "

A student asks.

 

"My heart was torn out of my chest,

Pierced with the red-hot poker of betrayal,

Stabbed repeatedly with a stiletto

Before being defecated upon

By my former de facto

And which hitherto

Has not been returned to me intacto."

 

"Can I take that as a yes, sir?"
