Extremophile Heart

My heart not unlike the tardigrade
can survive the vacuum of space
and time and remain solid and warm;
not frozen from wading the past twenty years
in the minus two hundred and seven centigrade
icy drifts of men’s hearts.
Always hoping for the big melt as
it counts the droplets in retrograde
memories captured on microscope slides.
It waits for that perfect droplet to cause it
to dance to life and intergrade
with another heart not unlike a tardigrade.
