Prognosis

One day we’ll die but
we’ve never tried peanut butter M&Ms,
seen Catherine Zeta Jones,
tongue kissed Brad Pitt,
when everyone else has,
everyone seems to.

We’ve only felt each other’s hands
long enough to guess the temperature,
antagonised parents,
predicted riots,
read the minds of people around us,
and they’re dying;
dead soon.
