Hologram Heart

he's got a hologram heart,
glowing in red bamboozled passion
it goes–
THUD.
thud—THUD
thud–
THUD.
in this pithy backward fashion.
and I can count the beats per fragment
'cause they v-vvvibrate like a magnet
against the slow-ing
dun—DONE,
the mostly polluted pallor,
of my own
hollow, grim heart
