how funny

I’m surprised that
in a labyrinth of arteries and bones
you still managed to cast
straight into my heart

I feel the hook tighten,
inside my chest
metal against flesh
the poor, helpless
little thing, hush now

how funny, I say
as you reel me in
I don’t remember
swallowing the bait
in the first place
at all
