life on hold
–july 3, 2018–
méxico city, méxico
by Luis S. González-Acevedo
life on hold…
waste of a story
i think… go where you want to be ¡be bold!
beware… avoid the folly
by clicking out of life’s pause and into play.
remember… perfect moments don’t exist
wishes run with slight or much delay
re$our€es merely al£ow us to subsist
the time for what matters is seldom right.
the future is guaranteed to come
believe you me, for life there’s no rewrite
mostly, it arrives when we’re undone
and the price for its grand entrance is our fine:
our breaths paid for in the currency of time.
–life on hold will appear in a future book of poems and stories (release date | July 2020)–
