What the Experts Don't Tell You

+ enlarge

It happens the way you’d fear it most

Not from one month to the next

but in one moment: predictable and happy

and in the next: all wrong

The people you hear about on the news

that could never be you

Are around the next corner waiting

to exchange their life for yours

They want you to know

they don’t want to be virtuous

To make something meaningful from pain

Or establish another foundation in their son’s name

They would rather you take their burden from them

Exchange their unwanted tragedy for your freedom

Your unknowing, precarious life

They’d snatch it in a minute if they could
