Tachycardia all day yesterday
faint 8 a.m.
by evening a fast thud-thud
insistent as if someone is trying
to tell me something
in a language I don’t know
the sign language
of a being
that expresses itself in beats
and is becoming impatient
with my ignorance
we used to understand each other
or so I thought
I thought we were like sisters
