  • We spend every day living

    And every day dying;

    A fulfillment is time lost

    And a loss is a time filled;

    On palm trees

    Coconuts dangle whole;

    Off them

    They are cracked in half;

    The power to consider

    Which halves or wholes

    Is yours.

    Choose wisely.
