a compartment with four chambers

close to major arteries
a home to keep your honey in
like hives are for the bees
.
surrounded by a fortress, strong
a cage made out of bone
your heart is still the frailest thing
that you will ever own
..
the windows must be opened
so that you'll enjoy the view
the properties are love
are furnished by a love that's true
.
we want a lease that lasts for life
but oft times one just rents
then moves to other quarters
after failed experiments
.
we haul around our baggage
up and down the beaten track
until we find a lover
who will help us to unpack
.
it's good to have a partner
when the mortgage payment's due
the properties of love
are furnished by a love that's true
