How does it feel to be a heart?

Once a young woman said to me,
"How does it feel to be a man?"
And I replied, "My dear, I am not so sure."

Then she said, "Well, aren't you a man?"
And this time I responded,
"I view gender as a beautiful animal
that people often take for a walk
and might enter into some odd contest
in hopes of winning a strange prize."

My dear, a better question would have been,
"How does it feel to be a heart?"
For all I know is love,
and I now find my heart infinite, and everywhere.
