If A Heart Breaks - stef lenk

This winter I was walking through the city by myself when I saw a man lying in the street. He had had a heart attack. His shirt was hiked up and his bare skin was touching the ice and concrete. There were two paramedics: one was pounding on the man’s chest and the other was listening at his mouth for signs of life.

For some reason the heart <that ugly, relentless muscle the size of a clenched fist, that keeps on Beating and Beating and Beating> for some reason the heart belonging to this one man had decided, at that moment, on that street, in that city, to just stop.

I kept on walking, knowing just for an instant how lucky a person can be. Mine, after all, had not.
