10/365: Bodies and Hearts

Aidan reading 2

I think about being old with him,
about watching the tenor of his skin change,
and the treble of his voice.
I wonder what new mannerisms he'll adopt
to navigate his moving internal maps.
I wonder about my own face and voice.
I hope he'll love them and me
as I imagine loving him,
that our hearts will be less moveable
than the bodies that carry them.
