So Live…

“You Only Live Once” – Wrong Ramen, Burgos Circle, 27 February 2015

it pays

to take

every risk;

to spit

point-blank

at death,

to thumb

your nose

at fate.

you take every

fall

as it

comes;

trip over

your feet

crash

smash

collide

careen…

and enjoy

every single

heart-pounding

second.

for how

can you

claim

to know

how

to live

when you

never

look death

and sister

danger

in the

eye?
