Heartbeat

We remember
the day we became immortal
at least,
the day we knew we would become immortal

And yea, ok - immortal might mean 5,000 years
but it means:

nothing will kill me.
nothing on this earth.
no virus. no illness.
no mechanical breakdown of the body as a result of inflammation response awry.
no age related diseases.
no macular degeneration of the eye.
it's just thickening. cut it back.

it means 5,000 years of life.
it means you and I

Young again
repaired
parts replaced


hurtling
toward deep space.

both of us.
slowly.
going.

mad.
