she has a heart of gold
and she, a heart of lead
and she, a heart of uranium.

and they go walking sometimes, the three of them.

gold is confident in her worth,
untarnishable
bought and sold and bought and sold
the virgin whore

and lead behind,
heart heavy in her chest
guilt from bullets
and pride from pipes
and anxiety from irreparable brain damage

and somewhere off to the side treads uranium,
tumors growing,
white skin glowing,
thin frame for a dense core.
fiction.

triads frequently show up in mythology and fairy tales. three is one of those magical literary numbers, i guess. it's a good one.

hearts of gold, too. all those noble princes.

Thank you!
I'm fond of words in every language, Latin included, and I use 'em to the point where I fear people won't understand me. It's good to know at least lead got through. :>
