Give him a hand

the minutes tick without prodding

you’re an adult with a wristwatch

and no one is watching you

flick it hard and curse

as your imminent death draws nearer

I’ll give you my second chance,

’cause I don’t need it

we’re all human lives in garbage cans

waiting to be taken out

so don’t be late to the curb

  1. dear nora,

    these lines stand out best. “we’re all human lives in garbage cans, waiting to be taken out.” i think this would be a great addition to the book of quotations.

    best regards to you.
