Social Isolation: Day 36

There’s a girl coming.
I don’t yet know her name.
She lives inside of my girl
who once lived in me.
Across the miles between us
I can sense her mind
working like an astronaut’s,
heartbeat steady
in the midst of wonders.
Focused on the here and now,
she’s turning code to flesh
and memorizing voices
that will guide her home.
My voice is not yet one of them
but when we finally meet
she will find in it the family pattern
and I will learn her name.
