  You could have a big dipper   

In case you thought this was my only body by Megan Cannella

I read somewhere

or heard somewhere

that every 7 years

all the cells of the body

are replaced.

Which would mean

the body you knew

is somewhere

on some other timeline,

in some other dream,

the construct

of some other level

of cognition

that doesn’t exist


with no proof

it ever really did.

When I looked that up

just to be sure

my current body

doesn’t know you anymore,

the results were inconclusive

kinda like us.
