Insurance Taken Out To Protect A Friendship From Ending

By Glenn Colquhoun

We should swap heads.
Yours would be a circle
And mine would be a square.

We should swap arms.
Yours would be two apples
And mine would be two pears.

We should swap legs.
Yours would be an elephant’s
And mine would be a fox.

We should swap lungs.
Yours would be two bags of wind
And mine would be two socks.


We should swap toes.
Yours would be from Mexico
And mine would be from Spain.

We should swap ears.
Yours would be like blocks of ice
And mine would be like flames.

We should swap hearts.
If you ever go away
I could just explain

How part of me has left with you
And part of you remains.
