The things you want most to say
about aging bodies
are not the things the world
wants to hear.
The world doesn’t want to hear
about aging bodies at all
they might catch it,
some existential communicable disease
to which they have carefully
built immunity.

They are never going to grow old
their karma doesn’t stink,
they have always thought positive
taken good care of themselves,
eaten all the right things,
exercised daily,
shunned all the things
they were supposed to have
(but only in the most positive way).

How could they possibly grow old
some evil-minded troll
it upon them?

How could they possibly grow old and
How could they possibly
How could they?
How could they
