On Borrowed time


Borrowed time. Lucky, in other
words, beaten the odds, gotten
an extension on any manner of
conditions. Artificial time.
We pay the ultimate percentage
for borrowed time but there is
no better imitation.
As with many clichés, the meaning
has been eroded, we don’t think
of meaning with such sound bites
as they exist to avoid actual
complexity, emotion; like a password
for agreement on cynicism, on
unmentionable death or some
life changing financial outcome,
about to take us off grid.
