Echocardiogram

They will study
the thumping in my chest,
mapping this heart
will they discover:

my first date left with a rival
death plucked my champions
I partied a decade away
I cry for others

Will they see that
my arteries unclog
at the glimpse of
the feminine body
and detect
the furious pumping
that courses through me
when that cherished energy
is near?

Have the unexpected losses
taken a toll?

This heart
has travelled many breaks
only to be resuscitated
in the warm glow
of certain affections

I bet they'll
hear a variety of rhythms
that reflect the swinging state
of my chest's reflections

But my primary concern,
is will this show character
or has deterioration
set in.
