Rangi McNeil: The heart is a foreign country

The Heart Is a Foreign Country
Rangi McNeil

“Ours is a partial language part pantomime,
part grimy guesswork: adulterated speculation
as to meaning & motivation.

Translated, heart suggests a familiar, universal
device but internal chemistries vary—
though components be the same & not uncommon.

The world owes us nothing. It promises less.
Call it: freedom. Free will. Or Wednesday.”

—Rangi McNeil.
