While Supplies Last

Those shoes. Stitching so fine.
That shirt. How it hangs.
This fruit. Juice dripping.
Limited time offer.

Parent’s love. Accepting without question.
Lover’s touch.  Safety in embrace.
Child’s laugh. Contagious smiling.
Limited time offer.

Romance rebuffed. Rejected and alone.
Broken body. Suffering without rest.
Warring cities. Sewers of blood.
Limited time offer.

Beach sunrise. So orange.
Mountain clouds. So white.
Rolling oceans. So blue.
Limited time offer.

That breath. Rising, falling.
That heartbeat. Thumping, thumping.
This instant. Thinking, feeling.
Limited time offer.

Act now.

– A. B. Clarke, Mar 2015
