JUST ONE SLIP
(3/20/17)

no wonder
we're anxious

neurotic

we're just
inches

seconds

away
from death

disability

with each
step

each breath

we can
prepare
obsessively

but in
the end
our demise
is simply
a matter
of chance

circumstance

we walk
along
realizing
how quickly
this will all
be taken
away
someday

or right
now
