Large Heart Fatal

History shows
that people with an abnormally large heart
are prone to sudden cardiac arrests.

In the cool night
dogs bark in tune,
cicadas are dead quiet.

A free budgie
is lighthearted;
unlikely to survive the winter.

I think of drawing curtains
though it will take more than dawn
to wake me up.
