"I Can't Let Go of Them"

The cardiologist Dr. Ross can recite the story of each heart / token. They are given repeatedly to her by successful heart transplant patients. During the opening she wrote the patients' initials and how long they have lived since transplant.

These objects take on a life of their own. They live in her office. She cannot part with them. Their inconsequential appearance betrays their power.
