search for me

hearts

my doctor held a cold stethoscope to my chest

head cocked to the side as she heard my heart murmur

 

my other doctor read the report after my hysterosalpingogram

she said "it says here, you have a heart shaped uterus, which doesn't really mean anything,

but it's kind of cute"

 

the midwife's assistant stood in the kitchen smiling

as she lifted my friends placenta from a shiny metal bowl

and showed us it's heart shape
