Did Someone Say “Mortality?”

Image result for we live in the flicker

It’s difficult to get our head around it

We think we have lots of time

We think we will not fade after the flash

We think we are more than a flicker

Then

When our friends start to fall off the planet

Or when we see ourselves start to fade (and no effort to change that succeeds)

We panic or despair

Even though those before had known and warned us

We would only live in the flicker

We had forgotten

As we had forgotten until now

That we were flying through space at one thousand miles an hour
