Echocardiography



                                                    At a drama club read
She asked me
Do you know your part?
Yes, I said, I know it by heart.

While combing my hair to meet her family
She asked me
Do you know your part?
Yes, I said, I know it by heart.

When studying crib assembly instructions
She asked me
Do you know your part?
Yes, I said, I know it by heart.

When cutting a graduation cake
She asked me
Do you know your part?
Yes, I said, I know it by heart.

After I getting an artificial knee
She asked me
Do you know your part?
Yes, I said, I know it by heart.

When preparing scripted dialogue for our 50th
She asked me
Do you know your part?
Yes, I said, I still know it by heart.
