Bout a month before school we were kids at the pool when the diving boards were high there was so much kudzu there were girls in swimsuits and they wanted to see boys fly I was shaky at best tryin to be like the rest as I jumped right off the side (oh my) but my jump was too close concrete kissing my nose made me feel like I almost died

life can be a brand new swingset then a struggle to survive when you realize you're dyin you might finally feel alive

years later when the doctor told me this may be your last week and so now it's time to try to get affairs in order I just stood in the corner with a box of oatmeal creampies now there's wind in the trees about 60 degrees and it feels so good outside (it's nice) I don't have to pretend to be happy again probably because I almost died

life can be a wild ass party then a struggle to survive when I realized I'm dyin I finally felt alive

barring any car wrecks or armed robberies gone awry the heart of the mouse and the heart of the whale beat about the same number of times a slower metabolic rate means a longer life so I'm takin' it easy at least until Saturday night
