The Zagreb Museum of Hearts

By | 1 June 2013

an ex-couple
still friends
wanted to store
their dead love
rented an old shop
and reached out
to collect
other people’s flotsam
a pink jump suit
a sandy copy of Proust
a torn photo
condoms past
their use-by date
letters of course
stale perfume
a toy bear clutching a heart
stamped ich liebe dich
a dried jacaranda petal
a lock of hair singed
a tooth possibly human
and a smear of lipstick
on a scrap of plastic wrap

a love museum

he says
she shakes her head
it’s just a dump.
