Has your life been good or bad ?
Ask if someone lived
a life that falls in the same question range
as a meal in a restaurant.
How was your meal? Was it good or bad?
Was the date good or bad?
Or was your life just life?
Was your life filled with bad moments
that were ultimately good for you,
or tasty, succulent moments that ended
Was there a slow sip of morning that felt like tea in Fall,
or a sudden forceful gust of wind
that hit like the first swim of late Spring?
How many cold nights did you wake up from?
How many walks did you take alone?
How many savory nights were spent in the minds
of your friends?
So rather than your life be good or bad –
are you full?
