You Don’t Know


time is an illusion
these are the last 12 minutes of your life


caffeine is an allusion
to the state of mind
you’ll be in at the end
of your journey
the dog bite
the moment you bury your father
and have felt so much you’re done
but your mind observes and records
each detail
of the grit of the dirt thrown
on top of the coffin and the hair blown
across your mouth and you regret
wearing lipstick because your whole
life is sticky and disgusting
and you have less than 12 minutes left
