Birthday Valentine

My goal is to be born
and live every day
until I can say today’s
my birthday every day
all 365 lives it will take
to overcome one day of death
it’s like the person we create
pursues his own decay
so a rescuer is sent out after him
then another after him and so on
forcing time to expand
to accommodate the losses
I was going to say crevasses
my goal is to die
every birthday
and be born
the next day
