Ode to the hands of time

So brief are the moments of life in the hands of time That living feels like having a one-night stand with time.

A letter to “pro-life” activists

Dear Pro-life activists, As self-proclaimed champions for life, you encamped about the wombs of women with stethoscopes, attentively listening for the first beat of life, to make sure that women don’t violate their fetal rights.
