*POETRY WARNING* For Michael, Proper - Alles Gute zum Ihren Geburtstag!

For Michael, Proper

My friend, My son,
Confidante,
Sometimes-secret soul:

On your day
Everybody passes hearts
Like a telephone game

Hoping to get one in pocket
With its message
Still recognisable.

It looks like fun, sometimes,
But nobody seems to read
The secret words of hearts.

I put my heart in your pocket
Knowing it's safe there
While I wait for my can to ring.
