On Heart’s Design

Two lines curving
meet in middle
form the heart shape
make a riddle.

Dent is upright
bottom pointed
all is top-down:
Love’s anointed!

All loves flip-flop,
change emotient.
Arcs invert to
complete quotient.

From fulsome breast
to darkling anus
love’s symbol tells
its story famous.

NOTE: Observe how an upright heart symbolizes breasts. When flipped the heart resembles buttocks, the anus. If the breasts herald the beginning of love, the buttocks symbolize the “end” of love. How appropriate is that? In reality, the heart muscle is not shaped like a heart. It is shaped like a fist, and it just keeps pounding, punching! I have looked for images to show how two hearts can be juxtaposed; maybe I need to have an artist draw these?
