Poem: the shape of this heart by Laura McKee

the shape of this heart

the shape of this heart
is tits up
on the wings of a dove
a fallen three on victory
camel humps
in wonder woman knickers


This poem was first published in Yellow Chair Review, 2016.


Laura McKee started writing poetry in her head by mistake, while pushing her youngest child in the pushchair to playgroup. Find her on Twitter @Estlinin
