Takotsubo

body born of electricity
 veins of excess energy
Slow your pace
for the heart can't keep the frenetic pulse 
of your arrhythmic mind
reset your circadians
modulate the beats
to a meter steady, slower 
rest a moment between each note 
alter this asymmetric frequency 
Heart that keeps such rapid time. 

Bata Bata Bata 
Fatiga
hasta que tu falta. 
Bata Bata Bata 

slower, corazon 
permit a moment's pause 
lest your weak valves leak and wither 
prolapse and leave your langushed 
monitor these waves and circuitries 
slow your wild race.

negotiate your pace, and meter
Keep a steady tune. 

Beat Beat Beat 
with a steady time
correct this unkind flutter
and myopathic boom.
