Wrinkly Knees

Examining my knees

I can already see the precursors to the wrinkles I have viewed on the knees of my grandmother — a woman who has lived my lifetime three times already.

I wonder if it’s twenty-six years that have embedded these microscopic canyons and peaks into the joints that already ache with the rains

or were they here the moment I grew my first skin, before even my first breath had matched the air.
