sure things

x

the child

dressed up as a cowboy

or a football player

dream and irony

x

even then

the heart

might be folded badly

not closing right

or opening

for blood and air

x

and did I feel it?

ask the child

I’m asking later

I don’t know

no one told me

maybe no one knew

until later

x

when the heart attacks

and surgeries

and the device implanted

were and are

sure things in

the older self
