The Question of Bones

Photo L.S.. Moscoso

Can I afford to not look up

to look straight ahead

with my eyes shut tight

Can I afford what that will cost me?

Don’t think

don’t speak

do not wonder

Can I afford to do that?

I’ll save a lot and have time to spare

one day.

Or I could hang the cost

run up the tab

and let my curiosity run free

a wild monster roaming the world

looking for more, feasting on too much, it doesn’t wear a watch

it doesn’t care about the bill when it comes due

Can I afford to do that?

Can I really afford to dream?
