The Soul Knows No Plastic Surgery

The body can decay

the soul cannot

I might not recognize your face after twenty thousand days away

but your soul I will know intimately

you cannot hide from me

even under a mask I know you

all the plastic surgery in the world can’t shield you from me

gravity might be redefined

time gets less and less kind as it unwinds

sure, food for diamonds

less so with us humankind

who all hope to rise up

after our bodies have been put below

still we might send men into space

I’ll still know your face

when you say hello.
