NEVER EVER
(4/21/15)


we so casually
interject
absolute terms
into our everyday
conversations

so cocky
and confident
with our breathing
selves

so desensitized
to metaphor
and hyperbole

actually
the only absolutes
for us
are life
and death

our binary
system
of existence

either
living one
or succumbed
to the other

they are
what
they are

discussing
them
is pointless

but apparently
always
meaningful

at least
to those
of us
still alive

limited
to our temporary
forevers
