Scar Map

When we were younger
we looked through telescopes
held hands at the planetarium
delighted in smoothing out
the folds of crisp star maps
and gazed long at the night sky

Now I gaze at you
folds at eyes and lips
smoothing into indefinite future
hands held in unfamiliar spaces
looking through progressive lenses
gently tracing the scars mapped
upon our skin
