Step 1. Find a nice warm heart. Befriend it. Step 2. Ignore it until it freezes. Don’t write. Don’t call. Leave its friend requests for later. Step 3. Crush it. Mash it into little pieces. Betrayal is best, or scorn. If you must say something nice, don’t say anything at all, or better yet, throw insults. Step 4. Add sugar (not salt). Sweeten it up. A heart tastes better with hope. Ask it to be friends again. Act like you care. Step 5. Add whatever toppings you like. Give it pretty things (or ugly things). Beat it up to give it some color. Step 6. Eat it whole. Yum.
