Limited time offer…

Are we to be praised or pitied?

Creatures starring at stars

dreaming of loves dear lost

hoping as death takes us

every day as we sip our coffee

and wonder about whether our

child is lonely, looking out into

a nothing we pray is something

and wonder about how our feet

once so fleet are betraying us

but that new ointment might

really make a difference if

we order in the next ten minutes

because everything about

life is limited time offer.
