The sign said:

"Broken Hearts/We Buy and Sell"

I reluctantly entered

So many hearts upon the shelves

Cracked and splintered

I asked, "Will you buy mine?"

The clerk said, "It all depends."

"On what?" I continued.

"On the shape it's in."

I unbuttoned my shirt

And opened up my chest

She looked at me with pity...

"Sir, there's nothing left."
