We lived and we died
in the space of a moment
and the universe laughed
at our inflated sense of
indulged importance and
the monuments we erected
to remind the future
who it was that ruled the past.

It wept when we loved as if the
world depended on our racing hearts
to keep spinning on its axis
but when all is said and done
I would prefer to have blazed
and illuminated rather than to
have smoldered in the embers.

Live once and live well-
the universe does not own your time.
