Ten Seconds and Counting

She had a dream
which woke her up
it made her weep confused tears
for a while
till she realised
there was time for grief.

She had a dream
of a happy ghost
who was rosy and plump
with golden hair

who looked at the dreamer and smiled
saying
You are not long for this life.
Do you understand??
Still smiling.
THIS life.
And she pointed.
You have two days.

What would you do?
If you had NO money…
and no time in the world to spare?
How would you be?
I need to know.

Would you jump out of a plane?
Would you clean your house?
Would you love your family –
Squeeze them till their eyes bulge…

And how would you feel
if right now
you were in the moment
before that deadline…..?

I want to know.
I need to know.
